Feds owe Toyota an apology
'Driver error' seen as the culprit


Five months into an investigation of safety issues involving Toyota vehicles,
the Feds have yet to identify any new defects beyond those reported by the car maker itself.

And in more than half of the crashes blamed on sudden acceleration analyzed by the government,
data from the vehicles' "black boxes" show the driver was not stepping on the brake at the time
of the accident—indicating that driver error may have been at fault.

Those were the findings that U.S. Transportation Department officials disclosed Tuesday to
members of Congress, offering the first significant details of the government's ongoing
investigation into Toyota's recall of more than 8.5 million vehicles globally since last fall.

Officials stressed that their investigation continues and may take months to complete. 

The Feds have nothing - after all their blustering about how evil Toyota and their vehicles are.

Like a bluffing poker player who got raised, the Feds are refusing to fold,
pretending they have a hand when everyone knows they got caught lying.

Again and again, the Feds demanded that Toyota "confess,"
but now the results are in and there was nothing for Toyota to confess.

The whore media made this a story when there was no story
and all it cost Toyota was millions in lost sales.
