Who does the FDA work for?

The FDA knew that SSRI drugs cause suicide as far back as 1996! But they did NOTHING about it. How many kids have died because of the FDA's duplicity with the drug companies?

The article below is a damning indictment of the FDA. Example: In reviewing Zoloft in 1996 it was found that it increased suicide in children by 5 TIMES. A letter was sent to Pfizer asking for "clarification and explanation" and a week later, with no response from Pfizer, Zoloft was approved for use in children. So who does the FDA work for? Obviously the drug companies.
