The Intercept berichtet über Kritik an der Nominierung von Lloyd Austin zum kommenden Verteidigungsminister aufgrund seiner Vorstandstätigkeit für Raytheon: Biden announced that he will nominate retired four-star Gen. Lloyd Austin III, once the top commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East, and now a member of the board of directors at Raytheon. […] ‘The potential for conflicts is huge,’ [William] Hartung said. “Raytheon is deeply involved in controversial programs from unworkable missile defense projects to nuclear weapons — the new nuclear-armed cruise missile — to precision-guided bombs that have killed untold numbers of civilians in Saudi Arabia’s brutal war in Yemen. If Gen. Austin were to recuse himself from decisions on programs and policies involving Raytheon he could not carry out large parts of his job as defense secretary.’” (jw)
