A new indictment has been filed against the former #3 official at the CIA, Kyle “Dusty” Foggo. Via Atrios:

According to the new indictment, Foggo provided [his friend, defense contractor Brent] Wilkes with “sensitive, internal information related to our national security,” including classified information, to help him prepare proposals for providing undercover flights for the CIA under the guise of a civil aviation company and armored vehicles for agency operations. Foggo allegedly then pushed his CIA colleagues to hire Wilkes’ companies without disclosing their longstanding friendship.

[...]

Prosecutors say that in return, Wilkes offered to hire Foggo after he retired from government service. In the meantime, he allegedly treated his friend to a Scottish golf trip during which they racked up a $44,000 hotel bill at the luxurious Pitcastle Estate.
