Oscar Wyatt Trial to Begin Today
Oscar Wyatt's trial starts today. The indictment against the 83 year old businessman comes out of an investigation of the U.N. oil-for-food program. Wyatt faces charges claiming that he paid kickbacks to individuals in "Saddam Hussein's regime to win contracts under the United Nations' oil-for-food program."
