  1. Top Executives Evade Blame in Damning GM Inquiry

    In response to the flood of recent recalls, the automotive company issued a sweeping internal report on Thursday that puts the blame on low-level engineers and spares top-level executives. The report accuses engineers of turning a blind eye to the ignition problem that has now been linked to 13 deaths. The company forced out 15 employees for their role in the engineering and bureaucratic mistakes that GM says led to the safety failure. So far, 2.6 million vehicles have been recalled, costing GM over $1.7 billion.
