Finmeccanica, Marine One & Yellow Cakes


Finmeccanica spiega una fetta ben visibile della politica estera italiana. Oltre alle polemiche contingenti - è chiaro che lobbying in K Street lo fanno gli uni e gli altri.

Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn) and others have alleged that the contract for 28 Marine One helicopters was awarded to the Italian firm Finmeccanica as a thank you for Italy's participation in the Iraq War. The evidence, however, indicates that the contract was more specifically a payoff to the Italian government for supplying the forged documents showing Saddam had obtained weapons grade uranium from Niger. President Bush famously used this fraudulent "yellowcake" intelligence to justify launching the war.
