Politics, money, and war.

Saturday, November 15


The New York Times reports that Defense Policy Board member Richard Perle has not violated any conflict of interest rules. The decision is based partly on the petite technicality that Perle only works for 8 days out of the year advising the Pentagon. If he had worked 60 might have been a different story.
The Pentagon's inspector general concluded this week that Richard N. Perle violated no ethics laws or rules when he was leading an influential Pentagon advisory board while at the same time representing two companies in their dealings with the government.
What are they smoking in Washington these days? Accountability? Out the window. Ethics? No where to be found.
