To cover his @ss, so that if and when Austal USA was selected, he could point to this conversation as proof it was Superferry officials, and not Austal USA, that had alterior motives. All of the players knew questions were being asked of them from the very beginning. I doubt with apologist propagandists like joshuatree around, that Lehman himself will ever be called to account for his misdeeds. Kind of like George W. Bush.

We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans.
