Caspar the Ghost...

Is the title in bad taste? So, I looked at the news today.
Ex-defence chief Weinberger dies.
Caspar Weinberger, who served as defence secretary under former US President Ronald Reagan, has died in hospital aged 88, his family said...
...He joined the Reagan administration in 1981 and went on to preside over a period of massive military spending.

Mr Weinberger resigned as defence secretary in 1987, amid claims he had been involved in selling arms to Iran to fund pro-US rebels in Nicaragua.

He was pardoned by President George Bush Snr in 1992, weeks before he was to have stood trial over his alleged role in what came to be known as the Iran-Contra affair...
Hmm. Looks like a true Republican.
