Lockheed Martin goes to bat for oppressive regime – lobbying

David Mastio, deputy editorial page editor at the Washington Times, said in an email that the disclosures in the piece were adequate:

I don???t know further details on the relationship between the author and the PR firm [Sanitas].

When I published the piece, I was focused on making sure the author???s relationship to the subject was disclosed. The piece mentions the author???s personal ties to members of Bahrain???s government and his bio line mentions his Bahrain-related position with the U.S. government as well as his current employment with a major defense contractor.

I am satisfied that readers were informed of the author???s connections.
