CxP Issues "Cease and Desist" Order on Land Landing

NASA CxP ISTIM Outbrief to JSC Engineering Management 30 November 2007 (Full Briefing Document - gives a comprehensive overview of Orion/Ares)

Editor's note: Despite official NASA PAO statements that no final decision has been made to baseline a water landing for Orion, the Constellation Program ISTIM Outbriefing to JSC Engineering Management paints a far different picture: "Landing mode - Nominal coast water landing, contingency-only land landing, cease/desist working nominal land landing, water landing environement definition per Team 0 recommendation, landing accuracy increased form 5 km to 10 km."

This sort of confusion makes you wonder who is actually in charge of this program, doesn't it?
