Mr. Twister

Сюрприз!!!

NYT — Peter W. Galbraith, an influential former American ambassador, is a powerful voice on Iraq who helped shape the views of policy makers like Joseph R. Biden Jr. and John Kerry. In the summer of 2005, he was also an adviser to the Kurdish regional government as Iraq wrote its Constitution — tough and sensitive talks not least because of issues like how Iraq would divide its vast oil wealth.

Now Mr. Galbraith, 58, son of the renowned economist John Kenneth Galbraith, stands to earn perhaps a hundred million or more dollars as a result of his closeness to the Kurds, his relations with a Norwegian oil company and constitutional provisions he helped the Kurds extract.

well it looks like he's done a pretty good job for them -- по-моему компенсация вполне даже в рамках. Курды его наняли; они ему и заплатили. what's wrong with that? Если бы он central government-у советовал тогда да; были бы вопросы.
Написано - "helped shape the views of policy makers like Joseph R. Biden Jr. and John Kerry". Может врут, не знаю.
Wealth is not without its advantages, and the case to the contrary, although it has often been made, has never proved widely persuasive. -- John Kenneth Galbraith
