1. ...
Foggo is a longtime friend of Brent Wilkes, listed as unindicted co-conspirator No. 1 in government documents filed in the Cunningham investigation. The two played high school football and were in each other's weddings.

According to government documents, Wilkes gave Cunningham $630,000 in cash and gifts in exchange for help in getting government contracts.

6. Cunningham get's 8 years and the contractors get ?????
They should be sued for the full value of the contracts and the CEO and all board members and senior management should also be marched off to jail, and banned from participating in any business that does business with the government for life, plus the business assets of the involved contractors should be seized as profits of crime.

8. I'm with you, heirs_of_liberty.
These guys should be treated as nothing more than traitors. They should be caged until they die.

And welcome to DU! :hi:

Exactly.
Jailing all these turds isn't the logistical nightmare it first appears.

Space can be found at all the Halliburton-built facilities spread across the USA.

PS: A hearty welcome to DU, heirs_of_liberty!

3. Let's hope they keep the cookie jars locked up in the interim
The CIA said Foggo, the No. 3 official at the CIA, would have no further comment. He will remain in his post at the CIA during the investigation, according to officials. ....

5. Don't they even have paid leave?
One would think you'd have to have the bio of Jesus to maintain the necessary Insecurity Clearances to be dictating US Foreign policy by backroom secret misinformation like that...

Ya know, the ones you drop and rarely mention ever again after you finish your flyboy career, unless you are clowns like Randy "Duke" Cunningham....

12. That's why
they had to steal the 2004 election. Not only would Kerry fire them, but his DOJ would be sending them all off to jail.

14. JFK threatened to, RFK certainly would have, and Carter tried to...
but all it got him was 8 US Marines murdered, 3 sabotaged helicopters left in the desert filled with classified documents and equipment which fell into the Iranian's hands, another million extra sand ni__ers dead in the CIA financed Iran-Iraq war, and a lost election.
