William Winkenwerder, Jr; you remember him….

You might remember William Winkenwerder from earlier this year. While still at the Pentagon and responsible for military healthcare, he expressed shock at reports in the Washington Post on neglect of outpatients at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, even though Salon had reported the same neglect two years earlier. “This news caught me — as it did many other people — completely by surprise,” he said at a Feb. 21 press conference.

well, William seems to have been at just the right places, at just the right times, to raise more than a few eyebrows over the awarding of a nearly billion dollar contract to the company he jumped to.
