Handouts and Haliburton

Dick Cheney still gets $1,000,000 a year from Halliburton, the company he used to head. The company that's on the short list of five US firms invited to bid on post-war reconstruction of Iraq (worth $900 million). The company that was contracted to build holding pens for Afghan prisoners in Cuba. The company contracted to put out oil well fires in post-war Iraq. With such war for profit, Cheney puts the "conflict" in conflict of interest.
