Another for the Iraq nepotism file

Looks like the Department of Defense has awarded the contract to rebuild Iraq's army to Northrop-Grumman.

Supposedly, 5 companies bid for the project, but the Defense Department did not name these "other companies".

Paul Wolfowitz, as the deputy secretary of defense, works for the Department of Defense.

Paul Wolfowitz is a consultant for Norththrop Grumman.

Has there been an award that wasn't blatant nepotism? Isn't it funny that companies with direct ties to the Bush administration keep winning these contracts?
