Former CIA Executive Director Investigated

Friday, May 12, 2006

(SNN Washington) Today, the FBI searched the home of Kyle "Dusty" Foggo. Foggo was the Executive Director of the CIA, the number three man in the organization.

Foggo claims he never took advantage of the prostitutes

The FBI used a warrant to search Foggo's Virginia home and is office at the CIA's Langley campus. After stepping down last week, it has been theorized that Foggo, an associate of Brent Wilkes, a lobbyist linked to Duke Cunningham. Foggo admits that he attended Wilkes poker parties in the Watergate. Foggo claims he never took advantage of the prostitutes that were freely available to high ranking administration members.

Despite the FBI's lack on confidence in Foggo, the CIA remains faithful to the former Executive Director. "If he attended occasional card games with friends over the years, Mr. Foggo insists they were that and nothing more," a CIA statement said. "Mr. Foggo maintains that government contracts for which he was responsible were properly awarded and administered," the agency said.

John Negroponte has said that there is an impeding indictment waiting for Foggy. One subject of investigation is a $3 million contract that went to Wilkes to supply 3 bottles of water and an egg salad sandwich to CIA operatives in Afghanistan and Iraq. At this point, it is unclear if the egg salad was ever delivered.

It is a shame that the FBI is persecuting this dedicated public servant who merely wanted to play cards with some friends and give them secret no-bid contracts in exchange for hookers. If this investigation continues, the American people will began to think that CIA is up to something sneaky.

Did they dig through his stuff because they were worried he was disgruntled and had "the goods" at home?
