I made the decision that seemed best to me at the time, based on the
information I had at the time.  One of my duties is to pick least-bad
alternatives in situations where we have no clear win.  I am happy to
have my decisions criticized, but you seem to be accusing me of some
malice, malfeasance, or carelessness and I don't think that's appropriate.
