"The Latin American drug cartels have stretched their tentacles much deeper into our lives than most people believe. It's possible they are calling the shots at all levels of government."
--William Colby

"As long as I can get government subsidies, what do I care if people have education or jobs?"
--Dick Ravitch

"I always keep a supply of stimulant handy in case I see a snake--which I also keep handy."
--W. C. Fields

Introduction:

A year ago, I took stories about litigation involving sex slave trafficking by DynCorp personnel in Eastern Europe and poor government contract performance to my neighbors here in Tennessee. One said to me, "I can not fathom that such things are going on, that our Congressman know and that they are saying and doing nothing."

Indeed, it was not long after that the State Department awarded DynCorp a contract to manage the information systems for embassies and consulates world wide -- another plum award for a company that seems to have a hand in most of the most sensitive information systems in the world -- at the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense, the CIA, the Air Force, the FBI, the Securities & Exchange Commission and even the New York Stock Exchange. If we are paying private corporations to collect highly sensitive data on all of us -- it seems like DynCorp is always there.

On April 11, 2003, Insight Magazine broke the story that "the U.S. State Department's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs has issued a $22 million contract to DynCorp Aerospace Operations (UK) Ltd., a subsidiary of Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), to "re-establish police, justice and prison functions in postconflict Iraq."

"The contract," according to one congressional aide who asked not to be identified, "was sole-sourced for one year. But this contract could come to $500 million before it's through." "There are some strange things about how this contract was issued," the aide continues, "because why would CSC use an offshore subsidiary. Is it so they won't have to pay taxes on this money? Also, why wasn't this contract put up for bid? Why was DynCorp the chosen recipient?"

The Congressional aide's questions are very good ones. As Americans prepare their annual tax filings this April 15, they deserve to be answered. Indeed, there are a lot of questions about this contract that should be asked and answered.

The following list of questions are provided to support Congressional oversight and media inquiry on DynCorp's qualifications to receive a significant sole source contract to implement the rule of law in a Iraq. These questions include links to a wealth of information useful for those who care to "dig & delve."

The rule of law depends first and foremost on people of integrity and competence providing day-to-day leadership of a system in which performance and accountability are transparent and reliable. The rule of lawlessness uses enforcement and the judicial system to drain community equity to fund a killing machine and pay off campaign support and political favors.

Readers are invited to use these questions and links to determine for ourselves which standard applies to this contract award.

Housing corruption: reality TV?

Bada bing! Tony Soprano reinvents government, HUD­style
James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano, center, with Steven Van Zandt as Silvio Dante, left, and Tony Sirico as Paulie Walnuts in HBO's hit television series, 'The Sopranos'
Dec. 10 ­ Credit Tony Soprano with doing something no one for the past 37 years has been able to do. He's taught millions of Americans that there is a federal Department of Housing and Urban Development. And he's shown how you can use it.

http://stacks.msnbc.com/news/845423.asp?cp1=1

In Tony Soprano's mob world, HUD exists to facilitate embezzlement, theft, and extortion. Of course, this isn't what Congress intended when it passed the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act of 1965.
