9.11 investigation

Buzzy and Cookie: the Krongard brothers

Blackwater, conflict of interest, arms smuggling, plus a tie-in with 9-11.
Oops! It turns out that our State Department inspector general (in charge of the non-investigations of mercenary firm Blackwater USA [  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21533017/ ]), Howard "Cookie" Krongard, has a brother on the Blackwater advisory board -- "Buzzy" Krongard. This all came out when Democrats confronted him at a House Oversight hearing . Of course, Cookie claimed he did not have a conflict of interest prior to the hearing because he was unaware of his brother's association with the company. This is rich -- the chutzpah of these guys is over the top!

State Department Inspector General Linked to Blackwater

For those of you who know a bit about 9-11, "Buzzy" Krongard also managed the firm that handled the "PUT" options on United Airline Stock.

Maybe they should call them "Buzzard" and "Crookie."
