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.
Who needs Iraq when you've got Halliburton?PdxMark

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.

"Maybe it's time to make an example of someone to show what level corporate responsibility is expected with dangerous devices."

Of course, niether I nor Eyebob nor Spookyload can openly discuss one of the key players involved, including business conducted at length with Saddam as recently as '97.....

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???

financial 'sins' of the Clintons with the financial, ah, dealings of the Cheney-Bush crowd. Yep. That would be a real fun comparison.

You liberals can dish it out to Bush and Cheney but can't take it for Clinton.

I think you missed your calling. Jay Leno could use your assistance.

Wouldn't it be absolutely shocking if inspectors discovered the "missing" device in Iraq?

Oh look! The smoking gun! Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
