CIA Number 3 Involved in Play-for-Pay Scandal?:


The Wall Street Journal reports today that the CIA has confirmed that K. Dusty Foggo, Executive Director of the CIA, attended “poker games in Washington, D.C., hotel hospitality suites, the use of which is the focus of a federal criminal investigation.” Foggo admits to being at the poker games but denies that anything else took place. Allegations have swirled over the past week that lawmakers and CIA and Defense Department officials were using the “hospitality suites” – paid for by defense contractor Brent Wilkes – to rendevous with prostitutes. The allegations come out of a plea deal in the Duke Cunningham bribery case. Foggo stated that any accusation levied at him that involved prostitutes would be “false, outrageous and irresponsible.” Justin Rood at TPM Muckraker points out that Foggo has “ties to Wilkes that go back more than 30 years, and have stretched as far as Central America and the Middle East.”
