HALLIBURTON IS RECEIVING NO BID FAVORED TREATMENT TO THE TUNE OF 425 MILLION DOLLARS IN IRAQ
WHERE ARE THE CRIES AGAINST THIS WINDFALL OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO A COMPANY THAT PLED NO CONTEST TO OVER CHARGING TAXPAYERS OVER TWO MILLION DOLLARS??
Waxman Letter to Acting Secretary of the Army
Read this letter by Ranking minority member of the House committee to Thomas ENRON White's temporary replacement.
HALLIBURTON and subsidiary KBR (Kellog, Brown, & Root) have already received over $425 MILLION DOLLARS of taxpayer money for IRAQ related contracts given on NO BID
This is the same HALLIBURTON:
1) Run by VP Dick 'show me the money' Chickenhawk Cheney
2) That pled no contest to overcharging the government for over TWO MILLION DOLLARS caught by the GAO
3) That gave VP Chickenhawk 80 MILLION DOLLARS when he left the Presidency of Halliburton althought Halliburton was losing money for it's shareholders despite bilking the US Taxpayer (that is you and me folks)
Now this is the kind of stuff that Say Uncle, Shot Across The Bow and Bill Hobbs should even agree should not happen since they appear to be in favor of reduced spending and accountability.
I even think Dingbust who has evidently raised Bill Hobbs hackles to a new irritating high, and his friend Barry of Inn of the Last Home SouthKnoxBubba and LeanLeft should all be able to agree that it is not good policy to give millions of taxpayer dollars in a no bid situation to a company that has already admitted a TWO MILLION DOLLAR over charge and which has such close ties to the Vice President of the United States.
