Actually a legal process defined by law, which allows certain
amounts of time for responses. Something quicker would be nice,
but probably not practical in a real sense.

Absolutely, Federal Agencies started to get calls from all
across the Country after the Andrews incident, and most were
working from information that was being posted so it was almost
humorous. I'm sure that the Public Information Officers got a
laugh out of it and had some fun with those who called.

And you are, of course, entitled to your opinion. As a Federal
worker in Washington and former news reporter, I would prefer to
have evidence that led to a conclusion.
