This article describes efforts by the US Justice Department to investigate a non-profit charity somehow hired by the US military to do intelligence work. In a somewhat related issue it happens to be in Johnstown, PA home of many companies the creation of Congressman John Murtha (D-PA) purely used to shovel US tax dollars into the local economy. The company became noticed when it hired a gentlemen waiting to start his political appointee job in the Air Force and paid him $26 K even though he admitted doing no work for them, or anybody else for that matter. Mr. Murtha has created a network of different companies that he just earmarks funds for. A non-profit company also has the ability to be preferred for US contracts. Somehow Mr. Murtha knows all this, but contracting officers and DCMA don’t.
