The firm her husband owns a substantial interest in just won a lucrative U.S. Army contract last week to help President George W. Bush wage his imperialist wars in the Middle East!

Senator Dianne Feinstein's husband, Richard C. Blum,

is a wealthy San Francisco businessman who owns about 200,000 shares of preferred stock in the Perini

Corporation, a Boston-based construction and real

estate development company. {1}

It just so happens to be the case that the Perini Corporation won a huge U.S. Army contract last week to help President George W. Bush wage his imperialist wars in the Middle East!

I bet the wine glasses were clinking at Senator Feinstein's home, weren't they?

Perini rises after company wins Army contract

Boston Business Journal

Shares of Perini Corp., the largest U.S. builder of

hotels and convention centers, rose 40 percent Monday

after the company was awarded a contract by the U.S.


The shares rose .61 to .60, the highest closing

price in 11 months. They have gained 26 percent this

year. In Tuesday trading, the stock gave back some

gains, slumping 12 cents to close at .48.

Perini won a one-year contract from the U.S. Army

Corps of Engineers to perform design, construction and

maintenance work for Central Command, the Engineers

Corps said Friday. Central Command is in 25 countries

and is commanding the war in Iraq. The contract's

value could be anywhere from 0,000 to 0 million.

"The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers picked us as one of

the three companies to provide services to Centcom,"

Robert Band, Perini's president and chief operating

officer, said. "That's probably one thing that spiked

people's interest."

Washington Group International Inc. and Fluor Corp.

received similar contracts. Engineers Corps

spokeswoman Joan Kibler declined to say last week

where the work would be performed.

( BW)(MA-PERINI-CORPORATION)(PCR) Perini Corporation

Selected by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for

Construction Projects in U.S. Central Command's Area

of Operations

Business Editors


2003--Perini Corporation (AMEX:PCR) announces the

award of a one year indefinite delivery/indefinite

quantity (IDIQ) contract by the U.S. Army Corps of

Engineers, Transatlantic Programs Center, for

design-build, general construction, and short term

operation and maintenance services in various

locations throughout U.S. Central Command's area of

responsibility. This area encompasses 25 countries

located throughout the Horn of Africa, South and

Central Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, and Northern Red

Sea regions.

The contract, worth up to 0,000,000, is one of

three contract awards made by the Corps of Engineers

for new construction, restorations, renovation and

repair, design-build, and O&M services to respond to

the contingency needs that might arise within the U.S.

Central Command area. Where practicable, task orders

will be awarded among the three selected contractors

on a competitive basis.

Typical projects may provide facilities for United

States military forces, other U.S. government

organizations, and friendly foreign governments.

Perini is currently leading a design-build team to

construct facilities to support the graduating

battalions of the Afghanistan National Army under a

separate Corps of Engineers contract.

Robert Band, President and Chief Operating

Officer, comments, "We are proud of this opportunity

to support the Army Corps of Engineers in its mission

during this challenging time in our nation's history.

Perini enjoys an excellent working relationship with

the Corps on our current project in Afghanistan,

having previously completed projects for them in the

1980s and 1990s. We are excited to be partnering with

them again."

The Perini team includes Tetra Tech, POWER

Engineers, Willbros Group, and Najad Rock Group.

Department of Defense and Department of State

programs, and for its hospitality and gaming industry,
