Scams galore

Joe Cannon writes about how the Duke Cunningham story is just the tip on an iceberg: Phony companies getting Pentagon and other government contracts and putting the money directly into campaign contributions and bribes.

John McCain says to expect "lots" of indictments from the Abramoff scandal; there may be plenty linked to the Cunningham scandal as well. McCain says "This town has become very corrupt, there's no doubt about it."

I doubt if Johnny is willing to confront the ultimate reality--the "war on terror" and the war in Iraq are in large part simply tools to facilitate this looting of America's (and the world's) wealth. Our government is a crime syndicate (I don't think it quite qualifies for the term "organized crime").
