Is the Forest Service Throwing A Temper Tantrum?

Businesses argue that the U.S. Forest Service is holding up certain hand-selected projects to force public outcry and a review of a July 2 ruling invalidating several Forest Service regulations.  The Forest Service claims it can't approve projects such as cutting down the Capitol Christmas Tree or opening up various ski resorts around the country. 

Even environmental groups involved with the lawsuit claim the Forest Service is playing political games with the Christmas tree and the upcoming ski season.  "It's clear to me that the Bush administration is trying to manufacture a political crisis," said Sean Cosgrove, a forest policy specialist for the Sierra Club, according to this AP article on Lexis One.

Attempts to hold the Forest Service in contempt have failed.

In response, the Forest Service has suspended approvals nationwide.  Lots of projects.  Could this reaction be classified as a temper tantrum?
