MORE ON HALLIBURTON
a Halliburton Primer
The forces of accountability and frugality in government should familiarize themselves with the SEC Investigation of Halliburton, Dick 'show me the money' Cheney's former and future(?) company
There is also information at this Wapo site about Judicial Watch's lawsuit against Cheney
Judicial Watch filed suit on behalf of shareholders against Cheney and 13 other Halliburton directors, as well as Halliburton itself and its accounting firm, Arthur Andersen LLP and Arthur Andersen Worldwide. The suit charges Cheney and Halliburton with fraudulent accounting practices and misleading press releases resulting in the overvaluation of the company's shares, leading to shareholder losses. The lawsuit alleges Halliburton overstated revenues by $445 million from 1999 through the end of 2001. Two shareholders, Stephen S. Stephens of Indiana and Lyle and Deanna J. Lionbarger of New Mexico, have been listed as plaintiffs. The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Dallas.
When you link the SEC INVESTIGATION and the JUDICIAL WATCH LAWSUIT to the $500 MILLION TAXPAYER DOLLARS on NO BID CONTRACTS a very UGLY picture emerges where the Vice-President of the United States is bailing himself out of potential trouble with taxpayer dollars.
Do you Conservative Republicans think this is a good way to spend your tax dollars?
WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE Hobbs, Shots Across the Bow, Say Uncle and INSTAPUNDIT
Throw the fact that Halliburton admitted to TWO MILLION DOLLARS in fraudulent billing of the government on the pyre and there is a huge bonfire in the Executive Branch where too little attention is paid.
The Great and Powerful OZ asks that you pay no attention to the man behind the curtain while you watch his fireworks in Afganistan, IRAQ, and IRAN.
WE ARE MAD AS HELL AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE.
