The USADA, being a new government agency, had to establish credibility in order to justify its existence and compete for federal dollars. What better way to establish itself than by tearing down one on the most accomplished athletes in America. Truth was the first casualty in their relentless pursuit of Armstrong. They used the testimony of Armstrong's discredited competitors (actually guilty of doping) and the governments all-time favorite tactic "spend him into submission".
