Transcript:
DIANE REHM: So too many priorities, too many goals. . .
HERBERT B. PAHL: Yes. . .
DR: Too many expectations. . .
HBP: The regions were told to set their priorities and to meet them, and then they would either be continued or not continued depending upon the way review groups, qualified review groups, would deem their effectiveness in carrying out their own missions. But as the program went on, Washington wasn't patient to resolve everything. And I believe this is a very clear case, I thought so at the time, and I believe so even more as I watch other programs in the country. If you give people the responsibility to do something and then come in ten minutes later and ask them do something else and twenty minutes later and the next day afternoon. . .
DR: Of course.
HBP: After awhile, they don't make anybody happy even though they're working very hard to meet what they are told are the latest requirements. And the funding followed meeting requirements in many instances. So that, in a way, I believe the federal government shot itself in the foot.
