READ ENTIRE ARTICLE - yes I know it's Newsmax - even one or 2 freepers got hot over this one..
Saudi/Yemen Link to Online Election Company, a privately held New York-based election software firm, currently holds a contract with the Defense Department to provide online absentee ballot voting for the U.S. military in 2004.
However, also recently revealed that its majority stockholders were a group of Saudi businessmen who did not want their names to be known.
According to a February 2003 article published in Newsday by Mark Harrington, in "a letter sent to a select group of well-heeled investors Jan. 21, the online voting and voter registration company disclosed that the investment group Osan Ltd. paid $1.2 million to acquire 20 million preferred shares to control 51.6 percent of the voting power."
According to the Newsday article, Osan Ltd. purchased "passive control" of using money obtained from foreign sources. Osan Ltd. is described as an investment group made up of unnamed Saudi businessmen.
