Double(u?)speak in action!

Gee, now here's an idea whose time has come:

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to change its policy to permit the importation of endangered species, their parts and products from countries that promote wildlife conservation programs.

Such a program could give incentives to countries to create stronger wildlife and habitat programs, the agency said in its draft rule, which is open for public comment until October 17. But some conservationists see the policy as a bad precedent and predicted it will face strong opposition.

And they're calling it the "proposed enhancement-of-survival policy". Yeah, that's one way of putting it.
