    1. It just shows how clever they are.

      Steven Taylor is confused as to how Halliburton could lose a contract, seeing as how we went to war to line their pockets….

    3. First they get white house pressure to buy overpriced oil from Kuwait, then they lose there contracts because of it. There has got to be a vast righter than right-wing conspiracy lurking here somewhere! :)

    4. Doesn’t this bother anyone? Halliburton was not only profiting off the blood of our soldiers, but they had to rub it in our face by gouging taxpayers.

      But not to fear. Halliburton only lost this one contract. It’s subsidaries still provide housing for troops, food services, mail delivery and the building of prisons in Gitmo and of course, the repair and construction of an unspecified (and unsupervised) number of oil wells. Who’s in the money?

      No, Cheney has the cards stacked and the American people will pay––with their blood as well a cash!!!

    5. It was especially clever of Cheney to have Halliburton approved as -the- provider for these types of government contracts without competitive bidding before he actually took office — because the overriding contract (the one allowing future work without competitive bids) was granted under Clinton.

      I picture Cheney in a black ninja suit breaking into the Oval Office and forging Clinton’s signature on those contracts . . . just before he planted a blue dress in the back of a closet.

    6. Of course. It is Clinton’s fault that the top executives of Halliburton are retired Generals, Admirals, CIA, etc., designed deliberately to manipulate the government. The Vice President used to be the CEO and the only CEO to break Halliburton’s own rule of enormous severance for Cheney.

      It’s crooked and you know it.
