David H. Brooks loves his little girl and, like any good dad, wanted her to have a memorable Bat Mitzvah. So, last November, David booked both floors of New York's opulent Rainbow Room for her party and sent private jets to fetch such musicians as Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Kenny G, Don Henley, 50 Cent, and DJ AM to entertain her and 300 of her best friends, each of whom was also given a little 'party favor', a bag of electronics and other goodies worth $1,000.

Total cost of the Bat Mitzvah bash: $10 million.

You could just write this off as yet another crass example of the excesses of the superrich, except for the source of Brooks' wealth. He is a war profiteer.

David Brooks is presently under investigation by the SEC for financial wrongdoing. To find out why he is also facing several lawsuits by investors for fraud and insider trading, you must read it in full at Jim Hightower's blog.
