Description

New York Post uncovers massive fraud by New York National Guard officials, including one general who skillfully derailed federal investigators; finds evidence of bribery in Congress and the Pentagon involving defense contracts; the guard allowed thousands of no-shows, or AWOLs, to remain on the books to inflate the guard's troop strength and mislead the Pentagon about the state guard's readiness for war or national disaster; the inflated figures allowed the guard to build its budget to nearly $400 million a year--triple the size of a decade ago, Dec. 11 - 13, 1989.
