The whole sordid— now stalled—Boeing aircraft tanker deal with the Pentagon evidently includes a Richard Perle angle. Seems Boeing placed $20 million with Perle's Trireme Partners venture capital fund. Later, Perle told the world what a great thing the $18 billion deal truly was in a WSJ op-ed.
Perle maintains the relationships between Boeing, Trireme, and the tanker deal are hermetically sealed, one from the other.
Washington, where our business is giving you the business.
