More Earmarks Hunting

According to the Washington Post, the Pentagon is looking into the process by which Randy "Duke" Cunningham's earmarks for MZM ended up delivering consultants to the then new Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA).

In documents filed in Cunningham's case, prosecutors said that in fiscal 2003 legislation, the congressman, who was a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, set aside, or earmarked, $6.3 million for work to be done "to benefit" the Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA), created in 2002. Federal prosecutors have been looking into whether Pentagon personnel committed crimes in awarding CIFA contracts to MZM.

The war on terror is just a Bush Administration scam to insure that American's tax dollars are spent to make Republicans rich (in and out of government).
