Iraq Corruption At Pentagon Allegations

Iraq Corruption at Pentagon

Allegations of corruption have been raised against a Pentagon figure. He is said to have pressured the Coalition Provisional Authority to make a telecom bid private rather than public, so that it could be thrown to an American firm using the Qualcomm CDMA technology and ensure that the European GSM standard was not the only one in Iraq. The most interesting feature of the article, it seems to me, is the revelation of how much the bid process can be manipulated by seemingly innocent procedures like deciding if a contract is private or public.
