Interesting but very shallow article on the people who distribute the dirty money which facilitates big oil contracts, centering around one Ely Calil, apparently known as 'Smelly' to his friends. The article mentions, but minimizes, some of Calil's less savory adventures (note how Silverstein describes a deal to install an environmentally dangerous refinery in Tripoli as some kind of victory), including his involvement in the failed Equatorial Guinea coup plot, the investigation of which may be about to become very interesting.
