State Dept IG Admits Blackwater Ties

Howard Krongard, the State Department's inspector general has recused himself from the ongoing investigation into Blackwater (an investigation he is accused of blocking) after it was revealed that his brother, the former #3 at teh CIA, sits on the advisory board for the company.

Krongard had originally said reports of his brother's position were "ugly rumors". Now that Blackwater has confirmed Krongard's brother "Buzzy" sits on the advisory board, the IG is recusing himself, saying he just learned of the potential conflict of interest. "I am not my brother's keeper" Krongard said.
