US: Resignation of Richard Perle

Peter Orne writes: "About the resignation of Richard Perle, the Wall Street Journal (A4, 3/27/03) reported that his conflict issue is shared by other defense panel members, including former CIA chief James Woolsey, a senior executive at consultancy Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., which received $668 million in Pentagon contracts in 2002. Ret. Adm. David Jeremiah and Ret. Gen. Ronald Fogleman were also named. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is busy and unable to comment on the matter, said a spokesman, Maj. Ted Wadsworth".
