We probably won't be posting very often (as you may have already noticed). But if we come across a good article, we promise we'll share.

Suzanne H. Woolsey is a trustee of a little-known arms consulting group that had access to senior Pentagon leaders directing the Iraq war. In January, she joined the board ofFluor Corp.

Soon afterward, Fluor and a joint-venture partner won about $1.6 billion in reconstruction contracts in Iraq.
