Tip for you, WNU Editor,

"The chairman of a key U.S. military contractor in the Middle East was recently charged with multiple felonies in a major fraud, money laundering and public corruption scheme. According to court papers in Kuwait, where the charges were filed, misappropriated investor money so far totals more than $160 million, a figure that could go higher, the Project On Government Oversight has learned."
