Any full scale audit of BBG operations would probably cost $30 million USD.

Can we cite that? - Eric 17:33, 1 March 2006 (UTC)


what is with that last section? are "impossible to audit" and "covert" definable terms or are they just catchphrases that conservative political scientists throw at government agencies?

Independant Agency[edit]

According to the BBG website, it is still an independant agency. Ishdarian|lolwut 05:49, 18 September 2010 (UTC) Then delete this one: "The United States Information Agency, which was partially merged into the Department of State in 1999. " That´s so typical Wikipedia. -- (talk) 05:57, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

Actually, that IS a former agency. It ceased to exist when it's functions were taken over by the BBG. Ishdarian|lolwut 06:38, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
