One More Bush Administration Crook

Shareholders may decide to take a whack atRichard Perle before the War Crimes Tribunal does:

Richard Perle, the former US defence adviser who served as an influential board member at Hollinger International under the regime of ousted chairman Conrad Black, has not been invited to take part in exploratory settlement talks between the newspaper publisher and other independent board directors, according to people familiar with the matter.

A special committee of Hollinger’s board is considering adding Mr Perle’s name to a $1.25bn lawsuit against Lord Black and other executives. The suit, which assigns varying degrees of damages to separate defendants, claims that Lord Black “looted” nearly $400m in fees from Hollinger over several years.

I’m so glad the preznit surrounded himself with men of such high moral character.
