Arthur Anderson roots alone, should create concerns, since the corporate culture was firmly in place when they split.

I had dealings with the consulting arm of Arthur Andersen, before the split, and it was not good back then. We paid them over $1,000,000 and the project failed. They blamed us, the firm that contracted with them.

The Enron caper was beyond the pale, and destroyed the firm, but most of the ones on the accounting side paid no price, and simply joined other firms and took their engagements with them.

Not surprising that government entities would use them, since they all thrive on corruption, cost run-ups, failed projects etc.

I was going to say IIRC they were up to their eyeballs in Enron.  Guess they can't blame this one on Bush.
