7. No. Well, ok. No. And, no.
Can't defend the EAC, but I don't think what you wrote is accurate.

There are industry reps on the TGDC arm of the EAC. Depending on influence, that's not unreasonable. And I really couldn't call it "stacked".

Two of the four commissioners were Bush's (he was president* for eight years), two seats are vacant.

The first director quit, but if it was because of "corruption", I'll need an update.

And, no, the EAC, not ES&S, will be doing the review.

Formerly, all this was handled by NASED. In fact, some want a return to that. I'm not an EAC fan, but the current arrangement beats the last, if by a nose.
