Wolfowitz Pushes Arms on Taiwan

Seven years after the Bush administration offered a massive arms deal to Taiwan and a year after Taiwan's politicians agreed to buy a much smaller package, the US State Department will move forward with $6 billion in weapons in order to avoid the entire package being scuttled by a future Obama administration.

The latest moves appear to be orchestrated by the Bush administration's former Pentagon heavyweight Paul Wolfowitz now Chairman of the US-Taiwan Business Council and the State Department's International Security Advisory Board and will most benefit Lockheed-Martin and a few other defense contractors.
