The WSJ reports:
WASHINGTON — The White House’s nominee for director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Leon Panetta, has earned more than $700,000 in speaking and consulting fees since the beginning of 2008, with some of the payments coming from troubled banks and an investment firm that owns companies that do business with federal national security agencies.
I found this part particularly noteworthy:
Mr. Panetta also received a $28,000 honorarium from the Carlyle Group, which owns a number of companies that do business with the national-security agencies of the U.S. government.
Remember that making hay of the Bush family’s ties to the Carlyle Group was popular in far left conspiracy circles, and figured prominently in Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11.
