Ukraine scandal ensnares Texas oil man

Washington (AP) – A business executive Energy Secretary Rick Perry recommended as an adviser to Ukraine’s government exaggerated his military credentials, according to veterans who examined his record. Robert Bensh claimed to have been a member of the U.S. military’s most elite units: Army Rangers, Special Forces and Delta Force, the hyper-secret counter-terrorism unit. But a summary of his military career shows Bensh actually spent less than five years in uniform, almost all of it with the Army National Guard.
