Navy bribery trial to expose pervasive problem

Recommended Posts

San Diego — Dozens of U.S. Navy officials have admitted to being bought off by the gregarious, rotund Malaysian defense contractor known as "Fat Leonard" who plied them with prostitutes, Cuban cigars and free stays at the Philippines' Shangri-La hotel, among other things.

Now as the last five of 34 defendants stand trial in federal court in San Diego, what's more shocking is how little the case has changed the Navy's way of doing business, according to former military officers and government watchdog advocates.
