The former West African Bureau chief of the Washington Post Doug Farah offers his thoughts on the controversy surrounding Aegis.
If there were ever a perfect case to demonstrate a bit of serious Congressional oversight, it seems to me this would be a fine place to start. Whether one agrees with the invasion of Iraq or not, it is clear that there must be oversight of how U.S. taxpayer dollars are spent. I don’t know whether Spicer and/or Aegis did anything wrong in this case. But providing a living for people like Tim Spicer is not, in my book, one of the best ways to spend our money.
