Letter: Doan was misunderstood

Regarding "Fox: Doan picked a good fight": Thank you Mr Fox. Too few understand what Doan was trying to do. I am also hopeful that she might yet win the war.  One of her last efforts was to push through the Blue Ribbon Commission to look at decade old policies and procedures like the archaic "price reduction clause" that has been reinterpreted and used by the [inspector gen to cause such disruptions in procurements. That commission, might well be called "Lurita's Revenge" for the very first thing they are likely to do is to bring some order and consistency where none previously existed.
