Oops. Put out the fire on one crisis, and a new pops up.
Hollinger International is examining investments that were made by Richard Perle, a director on the publisher’s board and prominent defense advisor, on behalf of the company. [...]

That probe, which is being lead by former Securities and Exchange Commission chairman Richard Breeden, is wide-ranging and involves close scrutiny of so-called “related-party transactions,” or deals in which members of Hollinger’s board or executives personally benefited from deals the publisher agreed with other companies.
Messy. Messy. Messy. But not to worry, they'll be cleared. What else would you expect--justice? That's so yesterday. Read the article, Hollinger examines Perle investments - Newspaper publisher probes corporate-governance practices by Stephanie Kirchgaessner.

By the way, did you know fellow Defense Policy Board advisor Henry Kissinger was also on the board at Hollinger?
