A Tyco-type in Baghdad

As if the scandals involving conduct of the war and treatment of prisoners weren't bad we find a U.S. Army Reserve officer who doesn't just have his hand in the cookie jar...he's sucking the contents out with a hose!

Both AP and UPI reported identical stories about Lt. Col. Bruce D. Hopfengardner and his extortion of "cash, cars, premium airline seats, jewelry, alcohol and even sexual favors" in order to throw massive contracts toward those bribing him.

He has pled guilty, as have the two men who wooed him with such "gifts" as "a white 2004 GMC Yukon Denali with a sandstone interior," a Harley-Davidson, and a $5700 watch.
