Tuesday, the Senate Armed Services Committee held a hearing on a $23.5 billion Pentagon deal to lease tankers from Boeing, a deal that has already sent two people to jail and was described by a Pentagon auditor as the dirtiest he’d seen in 33 years on the job. Somehow, the report from the Pentagon auditor general made no mention whatsoever of the people who were running the Defense Department at the time, Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Paul Wolfowitz.
