True it was done under Clinton, but many organic groups and farmers thougth this was in their best interests and under Clinton there was a fighting chance of keeping the standards sane.?

"In my opinion the decision by many organic farmers to get a national 
organic standard was a disaster.? They opened the door to corporations and 
once the corporations got their foot in the door it only took the Bush 
Administration to listen to them and to begin shredding the organic 
standards."

i agree, but wasn't the industry sponsored (and biotech-soft) Organic Food 
Production Act signed in 1990? that would be the Clinton Administrations 
handywork.

let's not forget both sides are corporate puppets...
