It's a seedy world out there, folks.

I dont mean to imply that Obama surrounds himself with questionable advisors any more than, well, any other politico, really. But certainly no less, ether.



Congo jet has Houston links

A private jet that flew four international businessmen to the Democratic Republic of the Congo where they are being held on gold-smuggling allegations was provided by CAMAC International, a Houston oil-trading company owned by one of the city's richest men and a brother of one of the passengers.
Kase Lawal, a Nigerian-born immigrant who has overseen CAMAC's rise to a $2.4 billion private company — said to be the second-largest black-owned business in the U.S. — and who was recently appointed to an advisory post in the Obama administration, is the half-brother of Mukaila Aderemi "Mickey" Lawal, who was detained along with fellow Houstonian Carlos St. Mary and two other businessmen as their plane was preparing to depart from Goma, a city in the mineral-laden eastern half of Congo.

S&F for you. Not much of a shocker here. If anything it makes you wonder how much goes on that doesn't get caught.
