GPO flap

The Washington Times is running a series of stories on GPO that are critical of GPO officials business expenses, the profits made on passport sales, and concerns over the security of passports produced by foreign companies (see, for example, today's story "GPO Profits go to Bonuses and Trips" with the opening sentence "When the government's main printing agency booked $100 million in unexpected profit it went on a spending spree: large bonuses to top managers, trips to Paris and Las Vegas, and an official photo of the boss that cost $10,000."). The GPO presented its side of the story in a press release yesterday titled "GPO Responds to the Washington Times Story. GPO Presents the Following Facts of the US Passport".
