FRR Document Update

Editor's note: From what I have learned, NASA PAO personnel are telling people that the FRR document decision was made "above PAO" and that senior NASA management is now seeking to "reverse" the precedent that was set with the release of STS-114 FRR documents - noting that PAO was railroaded into taking that action last year. Many people who have seen the FRR documents report that there is no overtly controversial content and wonder why there is such strong resistance on this issue. White House press secretary Tony Snow reportedly contacted NASA HQ and criticized the agency for being "in the news" earlier this month after the controversy arose following the STS-121 FRR. With the Vice President slated to attend the launch tomorrow, I am certain that the White House does not want to see headlines such as "Cheney to Attend Controversial Shuttle Launch"
