[A]lthough the legislative history of the FTCA lends great support for the argument that the doctrine of absolute liability is an acceptable theory to employ to seek recovery under the FTCA, the Supreme Court has chosen to rely on the Dalehite decision and completely overlook later Supreme Court interpretations. The legislative history of the FTCA also indicates that the discretionary function exception must always be confronted, regardless of the theory one proceeds under to seek recovery.
