In this week’s Irish Echo, Ray O’Hanlon reports that Senator Charles Schumer is calling for an investigation of the US contract with Aegis Defence Services.
In a letter to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Schumer urged the Department of Defense to direct Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, Stuart Bowen, "to conduct a thorough investigation of these troubling new allegations concerning Aegis."
Schumer wrote that while Aegis had initiated an internal investigation this was "plainly insufficient."
It was self evident, he said, that a contractor with so much to lose should not investigate itself. (Irish Echo)
