If the allegations stated in this article prove to be true then disciplinary action needs to follow for those who were involved from the top of the org chart to its bottom, such discipline that could even result in termination of one's job.

If you simply punish those who screwed up and not look at the system that allowed this to happen, nothing has been learned.
