PEU Peter Pace Partakes at Paisano Presidential Party

Days ago President George W. Bush hosted a dinner for Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. On the guest list was General Peter Pace, recently appointed to the Senior Defense Advisory Committee of Finmeccanica.

Finmeccanica is Italy's leading high-tech company, operating in the design and manufacture of helicopters, defence electronics, civil and military aircraft, aerostructures, satellites, space infrastructures, missiles.

Peter's new boss also attended the dinner. The guest list included Mr. Pier Francesco Guarguaglini, President and CEO, Finmeccanica. I bet they sat together. The question is how close they were to Admiral Michael G. Mullen, USN, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff or The Honorable Rudolph W. Giuliani, Chairman and CEO, Giuliani Partners. There are weapons to buy and consultants to employ! It's a PEU party...
