24798: Boswell (comment) re: 24792: Walker re: Bribes, etc. -- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)

Thank you Mr. Walker for that post about the Foreign Corrupt Practices
Act (FCPA). I agree with everything except that I have my doubts about
how far the U.S. will go in a prosecution in this era of perpetual war.
The U.S. is on a war footing, in a war that is taking precedence over
everything else. True, criminal prosecutions roll on in war time, but
history tells us that corruption is also the great beneficiary in War.
While lower level officials remain serious about these cases, the
centralization of more prosecutorial decisions make it more likely that
prosecutions will not pursued in the interest of "national security."
