Stupid lead

NASA's 400-page report says space shuttle crew's seat restraints, suits, didn't work as designed
This is the FoxNews lead for a story about NASA's findings in the Columbia crash. The point being if the the seat restraints, suits and helmets had operated as designed the astronauts would be...dead as opposed to what actually happened which is they died.

I read a good portion of the report on the deaths of the Columbia astronauts. It was interesting but I didn't understand why they were focusing on the space suits, lack of wearing gloves, etc., when in reality even if the astronauts had everything on, they were going to die anyway. In fact if they lived longer because of the pressurized suits, they might have suffered a more agonizing death from trauma.
