OH for heavens sake what utter fake surprise! There is a revolving door between the Governments of the United States of America (from local to federal) and Monsanto. It is one of the greatest political lover affairs of all time! The two have been in bed together for a very long time.
So for any group, person, or agency to act surprised…. please.
