The FBI computer upgrade that wasn’t

"SAIC was at fault because of the usual contractor reluctance to tell the customer, 'You're screwed up. You don't know what you're doing. This project is going to fail because you're not managing your side of the equation,' " said Kay, who later became the chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq. "There was no one to tell the government that they were asking the impossible. And they -weren't going to get the impossible."
-from Article.

How can you possibly get to the final delivery with more than half of the functionality not there/tested?

This project I am sure did not require 200 developers, after all it said only 700k of code was produced.
