The Associated Press has this story today on former Chula Vista high school buddies contractor Brent Wilkes and ex-CIA Executive Director Kyle “Dusty” Foggo.

Here’s a peek:

CIA officers operating in northern Iraq bought drinking water from a bottling plant there for years prior to the 2003 invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein.

That changed soon afterward. A CIA officer handling logistics for the Middle East and other regions recommended that an American company provide water and other supplies, according to former government officials.

The U.S. contractor that benefited from the multimillion-dollar deal wasn’t just anyone. The company had personal ties to the officer, Kyle “Dusty” Foggo, who would soon leave his logistics post in Frankfurt, Germany, and move to Washington to become the CIA’s third-ranking official.

(And a hat-tip to Talking Points Memo for the link.)
