      The NAS is (in)famous for being rather independent in its analyses (as it should be).  It really depends on the staff they gets chosen to run the study and then the experts that are placed on the panel.  To be honest, NAS reviews are usually the thorn in a government program officer's side as they are sometimes mandated and you don't know what the result will be.
