I've heard that he didn't even defraud the gov't so much; that the offence was quite minor. Does the punishment fit the crime? How often does the gov't defraud the people? For example, porkbarrel spending. Maybe the AUstralian people should hold their own gov't accountabel by protesting gov't waste ...

You are right Clutchfan: You are recognizing something is wrong, just like I did. Just like I wrote earlier: These natives and historical societies should take their obsessions and use them on something else, like becoming a golf nut, or baseball nut. Go and collect Barry Bonds baseballs. Stay out o...

Legal Eagle: In regards to your post the answer is quite simple, defamation is very difficult to enforce. (Look at all the nasty things they say about Bush). Even he can't send the IRS or Labor Dept. against all who openly criticize him. Another case in point is the simple saying, "One man's junque ...

Yes interesting indeed: What if a Navy plane is in PNG and the PNG gov't informs the Chief of Naval Operations and the Naval Historical Society, that "the Hellcat is ours". I can think of a scenario, perhaps the US Navy will declare war on PNG and invade. Perhaps we could call it the Relic War I, in...

Why only Mr Grienart allowed to recover relics? how can he have agreements and MOU with landowners who can not read and write English. Please leave PNG and take HARS with you. I know why. He works hard, and takes risks others rufuse to take. He's taking personal risks, financial risks, and he's ris...

its funded thru the DoD
My point exactly, and taxpayers are paying for it. Taxpayers are paying for a group that shouldn't exist--needless gov't bureaucracy.

Many gov't regs. allow for "loopholes" as well. As for the US Navy, we as taxpayers pay them to defend the country, not for historical preservation. Let me repeat, the Navy's job is not historical preservation. Some one needs to write their congressman and put a stop to the Navy's overreaching the s...

Yes, I agree w/ Aristaeus: In fact I can think of two cases where people have recovered planes that had fatalities. One in PNG and the other in Canada. Also I saw a documentary where people recovered things from sunken ships w/ mass fatalities. I know a person who recovers MIAs w/ permission from ne...
