Former US Representative Randy "Duke" Cunningham has been sentenced to 8 years and 4 months for accepting bribes from defense contractors. But the investigation isn't over yet and now it's spread to the CIA, where the CIA Inspector General has opened an investigation into the agency's #3 official, Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, who oversaw contracts involving one of the companies accused of paying bribes to Cunningham. Let's review:
  • Cunningham, a Republican congressman from California, was found guilty of accepting $630,000 in cash and gifts from Brent Wilkes, founder of ADSC Inc.
  • ADSC Inc. received more than $95 million in government defense contracts.
Wilkes, at this point an unindicted co-conspirator who is rumoured to soon be singing like a bird, happens to be a longtime friend of Brent Wilkes, according to this ABC news article:
The two played high school football and were in each other's weddings.
So how close were they more recently? Well, according to Newsweek,
Foggo and Wilkes are old buddies. Pals in San Diego say that between assignments overseas, the genial, hefty Foggo was a conspicuous presence at Wilkes's parties.
"Curiouser and curiouser," cried Alice! But that's just the corruption part. Now for the cronyism part, again from the same ABC news article:
As executive director of the CIA, Foggo oversees the administration of the giant spy agency. He was appointed to the post by CIA Director Porter Goss after working as a midlevel procurement supervisor, according to former CIA officials.
Say again? Newsweek, redux:
After Porter Goss took over as CIA director, many agency veterans were astonished when the former House intel chair chose Foggo, a midranking bureaucrat, to become CIA executive director, the agency's third-ranking official, responsible for day-to-day operations.
Gee, I wonder if this is going to lead to a "Heckuva a job, Dusty!"
