Pentagon paid $1.7 million to firms of polygamy bosses


www.cnn.com

NEW YORK (CNN) -- The U.S. government paid more than $1.7 million in defense contracts over the last decade to companies owned by leaders of Warren Jeffs' polygamous sect, with tens of thousands allegedly winding its way back to Jeffs and his church.

In fact, some of the deals were made after Jeffs was named to the FBI's "Most-Wanted List" and remained in place while he was on the run.

    Story Highlights
  • Pentagon bought airplane parts from companies tied to Warren Jeffs
  • Contracts continued even after Jeffs was on FBI "Most-Wanted List"
  • Pentagon defends contracts, stands by them as appropriate
  • Retired Army colonel says nothing illegal happened, but people will be "appalled"


Something like this doesn't exactly come as a surprise.
Are you appalled? Do you think the contracts are innappropriate?

How about a news story like "World Pays Billions to Polygimists" aka the world pays Billions of dollars for oil to Arab nations that practice polygamy.


Out of all things wrong going on, what an absurd focus. Evil Polygamists
This is as distracting and not worth tax payers money as much as all of the rich missing blonde white girls. Absurd and Pointless.

And on top of that, the 16 year old girl didn't even exist. The freaking phone call that kicked this off was a Hoax. What the Gehenna is wrong with people?! Can't we focus on something else like $117 dollar a barrel oil? Global Food Crisis? Why the kid from the Third Rock sitcom is playing Cobra Commander in the Gi Joe movie?
These are real issues. Well maybe not the last one, but its still probably a bigger issue than polygamy.
