    The Obama administration is being accused of coaching the testimony of an Air Force general to make his testimony about a proposed wireless network appear more favorable to the wireless network provider company, owned by an Obama supporter.

    Phillip Falcone is the majority shareholder in an equity firm that runs LightSquared, a Virginia based company that has applied to the FCC to build tens of thousands of ground based wireless network transmitters. The problem is that the transmitters could interfere with consumer GPS systems as well as military GPS systems like missile targeting systems.

    The Air Force general, Gen. William Shelton, said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to [LightSquared] a company tied to a large Democratic donor.
