Summary:

The Associated Press used FOIA to obtain a confidential government survey from the Pentagon's Office of Inspector General (OIG) revealing OIG staff to be demoralized and doubtful that supervisors respect their work.

Notes:

The OIG posted the survey online in response to a request by PaperTrail, the blog of the Center for Public Integrity. PaperTrail also reports on a separate report from Senator Grassley's office examining similar problems. [citation: http://www.publicintegrity.org/blog/entry/909/]
