Black Box: Military contractor to whitewash Diebold?
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Wed Aug-06-03 03:06 PM by BevHarris
The state of Maryland just asked SAIC to issue a report on Diebold touch-screen voting machines. (See Late Breaking News http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph... )

My prediction: They will issue a report that puts a seal of approval on these voting machines. It will be almost impossible to debunk their report.

This is just to shut people up. SAIC = Military.

So far, we have the Pentagon involved with Accenture/election.com
General Dynamics,
Diversified Dynamics,
Northrop Grumman

All getting involved in voting systems -- as are the Saudis and the Pentagon. Why?

Take a gander at the companies run by SAIC and below this, their board of directors

At SAIC we have over 35 companies, subsidiaries and equity partners. A partial listing is provided below.
