0) It's the fault of the engineers for not specifying in the MCAS requirements that cross-checking systems was necessary.

1) It's Boeing's fault for OUT-SOURCING the development to Indian developers who barely know what a f*cking airplane even is, much less that have anything resembling even passing familiarity with avionics.

2) It's Boeing's fault for not sending aviation engineers to monitor the developers' work. THOSE would have been the guys to stand up and say, "Hey, this ain't right!"

3) It's Boeing's fault that management placed more importance on money than on safety. This probably led to "shortcuts" being implemented in order to meet unreasonable schedules. When presented with the age old conundrum regarding cost, features, and time, and that you can meet two of those three critreria, they practically stampeded to cut features in the interest of cost and time.

4) This is a very good example of how management screws up software, and then tries to blame the developer instead of management. I bet management all still got their huge-ass bonuses, too.
