What makes you imagine that government bureaucrats have the skills needed to put together the tests needed to determine airworthiness of an enormously complex aircraft?

"Open the pod bay doors, HAL".

One of the most memorable lines from movies past.

Boeing is a GREAT company; how they managed to put out a SW package that could argue with a pilot and prevent him from FLYING THE DAMN PLANE is a serious defect.

That a live person in the cockpit can't readily / quickly overrule the computer because the software rebels is truly unforgivable.

How in the hell did this package defect escape detection during BETA testing?
