WSJ: First Guilty Plea in "Oil for Food" Scandal

The WSJ reports, "Samir A. Vincent, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Annandale, Va., entered the guilty pleas in federal court in New York to four criminal counts, including conspiring to act as an unregistered agent of a foreign government and tax violations."

That's a start. Clearly Mr. Vincent was not alone and he is probably turning as evidence against his accomplices. I wonder how many are involved.

I wonder if, when, and how diplomatic immunity hampers the investigation.
