NHTSA took blows in a memo released Sunday by investigators for the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Republican majority, which pointed to decisions by the agency in 2007 and 2010 not to pursue complaints about air bags that failed to deploy in crashes involving now-recalled GM cars.

"GM had critical information that would have helped identify this defect," Mr. Friedman is expected to testify Tuesday, according to his prepared testimony.

Mr. Friedman plans to testify that it wasn't until this February that GM submitted information that "for the first time acknowledged a link between the ignition switch" and "the air-bag nondeployment."

"Had the information newly provided to NHTSA by GM been available before now, it would have better informed the agency's prior reviews of air-bag nondeployment in GM vehicles and likely would have changed NHTSA's approach to this issue," according to his prepared testimony.


Baloney.  The NHTSA chose not to pursue the issue for political reasons:  to not embarrass President Laughing-Stock and to also not tank the government's newly-acquired stock in GM.
