euphemism of the day

In an interview on NPR today about Iraq and oil companies, a guest was asked if the rampant corruption in Iraq would be a deterrent to oil companies moving in.  His response was, roughly, “Oil companies are accustomed to operating in parts of the world where a lack of transparency is common.”  I love that “lack of transparency” is a euphemism for bribery or lying.  I’m totally going to use that.
