And the definition of is is?

Admiral Blore told me that both the visual and the instrumented tests for the TEMPEST were completed in April. But follow-up questions on that statement suggest that it isn't the case at all.
That's from the good folks at the Project on Government Oversight following an interview Mandy Smithberger had with Rear Admiral Gary Blore, the service's Assistant Commandant for Acquisition. Turns out we're not debating the definition of is but rather done. From where Ms. Smithberger sits, seems like things are done only if done means started.

Did Admiral Blore adamantly wag his finger for emphasis as he said that things were done in terms of testing for TEMPEST?
