According to CBS news, Halliburton is doing a different kind of “money laundering”:
Other information in the article said that hundreds of Halliburton employees are living in five-star hotels in Kuwait with “fruit baskets and pressed laundry delivered daily.”
The Army pays $1.39 per day to bunk a soldier in a tent.
Halliburton employees were asked to move into tents, but they declined.
Most readers here know without being reminded that Dick Cheney resigned as Chief Executive Officer of Halliburton, a Texas-based corporation, to seek the Vice Presidency. And Halliburton was awarded the contract in Iraq without competitive bidding. Will they have to pay more than the 7.5 million in fines previous accessed or agreed to?
Does this corporation support our troops? Is this your idea of patriotism? It isn’t mine and I don’t think that it represents the views of most of the Republicans that I know either.
Isn’t this war profiteering?
