When Poway defense contractor Brent Wilkes heard that the United States was going to go to war with Iraq, he was ecstatic, say several former colleagues.
âHe and some of his top executives were really gung-ho about the war,â said a former employee of his now-defunct firm ADCS Inc. âBrent said this would create new opportunities for the company. He was really excited about doing business in the Middle East.â
One can only imagine that Wilkes let fly a “boom shaka-laka,” maybe even a “yeah, baby!”
