  1. Not a waste of time, but there are bigger fish to fry. He should do just enough to get the FBI working on it, and turn to the straight graft inside the government. Unless those contracts can be tied directly to Cheney, or fear of jail makes some execs start to squeal, this will be a side-show. Better to investigate the billion or so in suitcases that were sent to Iraq and never found their way back in delivered goods and services. That’s the kind of graft ordinary people understand.
