Recent news puts HALLIBURTON in the headlines again: Cheney firm's rival is forced to drop oil bid
HALLIBURTON is Dick Cheney’s company, but there has been so much NEGATIVE information that it is difficult to keep it all in focus.
How did HALLIBURTON become the unrivaled supplier of MILITARY LOGISTICS and winner in the IRAQ OIL Lottery?
___ PART ONE
First the Pentagon under Dick Cheney paid KBR division of HALLIBURTON a total of 8.9 million dollars to produce a classified report detailing how private companies could provide logistic services:
In 1992, the Pentagon, then headed by Defense Secretary Dick Cheney, paid Brown & Root Services $3.9 million to produce a classified report detailing how private companies could help provide logistics for American troops in potential war zones. Later in 1992, the Pentagon gave Brown & Root an additional $5 million to update the report. Brown & Root (now called Kellogg Brown & Root, or KBR) is a subsidiary of Halliburton Corporation, which Cheney, the U.S. vice president, headed as CEO from 1995 to 2000. Brown & Root was also awarded contracts in 1995 and 1997 to provide logistical support in the Balkans, where the U.S. military has been enforcing the 1995 Dayton Peace accord that ended the war in former Yugoslavia. Those contracts mushroomed to $2.2 billion worth of payments over five years, according to the General Accounting Office, the investigative arm of Congress. Privatizing Combat: The New World Order
It is astounding that we paid KBR division of HALLIBURTON near 9 million dollars under Defense Sec. Cheney to write the report that resulted in KBR division of HALLIBURTON’S receipt of 2.2 billion dollars for providing the logistics detailed in their own report under Halliburton President Cheney.!!!
In the late 1990’s Ken Starr launched an 80 million dollar investigation of the Clinton’s over a $58,000 failed investment in Whitewater, yet there is little mention of this obvious conflict of interest over massive amounts of money that continue to flow to HALLIBURTON. Perhaps it is because HALLIBURTON gave over $700,000 to candidates in the 2000 election cycle. All of those candidates were Republicans. END PART ONE - Much more to come.
