REALLY NICE. REALLY STINKIN' NICE.
The entire executive board (ah-hem) of this stupid company should have to share a cell with Walker-Lindh and Khalid.

|We're about to launch a war on the supposition that Iraq has WMD that might, maybe, could be passed to terrorists groups. Here a US company, loses the core equivalent of a WMD. Wow. Can't wait to hear how folks defend Halliburton. Maybe it's time to make an example of someone to show what level corporate responsibility is expected with dangerous devices.|

A great article summarizing the Halliburton-Iraq business deals. Halliburton acquired a couple companies in 9/1998 doing business in Iraq, and then continued doing business there under Cheney ($30 million) through 12/1999. Clinton Admin blocked some sales, but I'm sure that was just Liberal Interference in commercial activity.
During that time frame, Iraqi oil sales rise from $4 billion a year (1997) to $18 billion (2000).
So let's get this straight. Cheney's company helps rebuild Iraqi oil production facilitites to help quadruple Iraqi oil output. And I bet Halliburton will be a prime supplier on rebuiding Iraqi facilities again!
I wonder what sort of threat Iraq would be today with $20-$30+ billion fewer oil dollars to play with. Wow, I usually dismiss the radical liberal oil conspiracy-mongers, but sheesh.
Could you imagine what Republicans would do to a Clinton who did this???
