Halliburton faces criminal inquiry into its business ties with Iran
www.halliburtonwatch.org...

I found a great resource for anything you wanted to know about Halliburton. One of the more disturbing articles linked to was Halliburton and it's multi-million dollar businesses in Iran. More coporate violations of the Trading With The Enemy Act, you'd think somebody would have burnt some arses by now, but of course a War on Terrorism is so vaguely worded that I guess it's ok to make business with countries your invading. Halliburton, Hollinger, Enron, UNOCAL, and the rest of these turds need to held accountable and they need to hang. If we had lined Prescott Bush and Henry Ford up against a wall during WWII for supplying our enemies, maybe companies like Halliburton wouldn't be mandating our foriegn policies now. Coporate Totalitarianism is well under way. Take a look at some this site...
www.halliburtonwatch.org...


Total value of Halliburton's military contracts equals $21 billion
9 Dec. 2004
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9 (HalliburtonWatch.org) -- The total value of Halliburton's military contracts reached $21 billion in November



Rep. Henry A. Waxman Ranking Minority Member
Committee on Government Reform U.S. House of Representatives
December 9, 2004
Fact Sheet
Halliburton's Iraq Contracts Now Worth over $10 Billion
The value of Halliburton's Iraq contracts has crossed the $10 billion threshold. Halliburton has now received $8.3 billion in Iraq work under its LOGCAP troop support contract and $2.5 billion under its no-bid Restore Iraqi Oil (RIO) contract, a total of $10.8 billion.

Good research twitchy!

These guys do weasel don't they? ...Like Halliburton slides out of charges on Trading with the Enemy cuz it used a subsidiary out of the Cayman Islands to do its dirty work.

...Too bad ordinary people can't use fronts...

Well they are dirty and they know it, but they get away with it because its all in the family, now look at all the tax payer money they get awarded even with all the dirt that keeps coming out of them.

Cheney can deny any and all ties to Haliburton as long as he lives and it still would not convince me that he has no ties to it. This is just another good example of Twitchys determination to get at the truth. When are we the American people going to wise up to the dregs in Wshington, D.C.? There is not enoungh sulfuric acid in D.C. to clean up the political scene and the atmosphere that surrounds it. I thought Dubw was going to do something for the people in this second term and I can see now he is just in it for him and a select few of his cronies. We the people need to make D.C. work for US instead of all the special intrest groups. And one more thing that burns my butt a good one is that we have the tech. developed to replace the cunsumption of oil in this nation but nooooo....we have to send men and women over to spill blood for it. I wonder if any of those scumbags and that means you Dubw think about that aspect of it when you put your head down for the night

haliburton is another of the defense budget contractors that fall under the Carlyle group.

Occurs they all link to it, like I said before is all in the family.

Yup crickets. The right wingers on here always hollering about 'proove it' and where's the evidence, then when you lay it in their laps, they don't want to read it. Sad, but not entirely unexpected. The same thing happened with the Hollinger thread I linked to above. Spoon fed nationalism, blind patriotism, whatever you want to call it, we need to wake these people up and let them know what's going on. Not an easy task, comparable to trying to tell a blind person what the color red looks like, but most people don't have a clue how far it's gone.

Octopus's Garden

It will be interesting to see what, if anything, comes out of this investigation. The issuance of a subpoena doesn't prove anything in itself, but where there's smoke...

Halliburton gets a lot of press for political reasons, but it is only one of several monster corporations that pretty much do whatever they please.

While it is still early, my spider sense tells me that, like the other members of the Fat Cat Club, Halliburton will take full advantage of its connections.

That would be business as usual.

On the other hand, if charges result, this should make for some interesting viewing.

For those wishing to put a partisan spin on this, I'll share my opinion that doing so is meaningless, because I know for a fact that both major parties are dirty as hell.

Partisanship in the U.S. is just a matter of declaring what kind of crook you prefer to see running the country.

Not something I would take particular pride in, which is why I don't.

i made a prediction that non of the hard core neo cons would respond to this. it seems i was right.
I don't think it's a partisan issue at all, but, it is one of the areas that neocons simply ignore because there is no way to 'blame it on the liberals'.
it is your sig that warns of the dangers of propoganda and disinformation. picking battles is one of the concerns of a disinfo pro.
as non-partisans discussing the issue, should we just 'let' politics get dirtier and dirtier and say, 'well, it's all dirty, so it just doen't matter', or should we at least try and raise a voice of awareness, which may start a trickle down effect of humanity back into the broken social scene.

Damn, they even tried to defend the gay prostitute Bush planted to ask easy questions/suck up, yet none of them have come to this topic. Man, they are more spineless and balless then the liberals/canadians/french.(that is a joke on republicans, not french, liberals, or canadians, seeing as how I am 2 of 3)

Anyways, Haliburton, what happened to all the talk about going after them for the millions they stole from the soilders? "Gee, we gave 50million for body armor, yet they have no body armor. Hmmm, Haliburton now has 50million more in it's account. Oh well, let's give them more money."

Let's See More Of This

billybob: First off, I just want to comment that it is straightforward thinking like the kind you are demonstrating here that is what keeps me coming back to ATS. I always pray to see more of it, and encourage you to keep it coming. Thanks.

The Right To Remain Silent?

I would be interested in seeing a 'right-wing' perspective on this. Actually, I would expect them to be honest about the facts -- they usually seem to try, at least.

Heck, they simply may not know, and thus don't comment. There's nothing wrong with that, in my opinion.

But yes, the silence is a statement of its own, if a quiet one.

But only one. A good disinfo jockey can shoot from the hip on just about any topic and obscure the facts in doing so.

In a case like this, a Halliburton shill would post lots of accusations against the investigators, attack anyone expressing skepticism about the company, post lots of pointless links and long, rambling point/counterpoint flames, etc.

Not to give anyone ideas, but we see this sort of thing all the time here on ATS and elsewhere.

Spreading lies is much easier than disproving them, which is one reason why there are so many liars.

We both know the right answer to that question, and in our own little ways, we answer it every time we question an article or theory.

And when we expose lies for what they are, we are making a very deliberate stand against those who spread them.

Maybe it's not the most we can do, but it's much better than doing nothing – or helping to spread lies.

Here's hoping more people make the decision to fight lies and promote honesty wherever they can.

Halliburton, Hollinger, Enron, UNOCAL, and the rest of these turds need to held accountable and they need to hang.

Twitchy, I voted you 'Way Above' just for this sentence.


We've got a President whose family fortune was made through war profiteering and a vice-president who's CURRENTLY making millions off warfare. At what point does this cease being immoral and become totally absurd?

Pentagon 'hid' damning Halliburton audit
Suzanne Goldenberg in Washington
Wednesday March 16, 2005
The Pentagon stood accused of sitting on a damaging report from its own auditors on a $108.4m (£56.6m) overcharge by Halliburton for its services in Iraq yesterday.
In a scathing letter to George Bush, Democratic congressmen Henry Waxman of California and John Dingell of Michigan said the Defence Contract Audit Agency's audit was completes last October - before the election. They also note that 12 separate requests to the Pentagon to view the completed audits on the contractor's $2.5bn contract to supply fuel and other services in post-war Iraq had been ignored.

"We would like to know why this audit report - and audit reports on nine additional task orders - are being withheld from Congress," they wrote.

This is an exquisite example of why capitalism and government should never mix.

Great research post mister twitchy!



I was aware that infamous Haliburton is a dirty mafia corporation, but you sure helped me to see that they are really busy! Its a great time to be a war-profit corporation. Too bad these kind of people never ever face justice and punishment like the rest of the world. They will get a top lawyer and get away with every single charge that has been made against them.

Above The Law.

Haliburton is a corrupt company??? Nooooo, they would never attempt to profit from the ignorance or death of another. They would never overcharge for something that was 1/100th of the price. Sounds like how McDonalds charges you 4 bucks for a 30 cent chicken sandwich whcich will do nothing but kill you. (profit from death
) Would it be OK if Haliburton were not taking money from the government for large contracts yet still screwing the American consumer with overpriced goods? I see no need for a 6000 LCD TV, but do they really cost that much to make???

The fact that the they have large government contracts would occur if there was a red state or a blue state boy in office also folks. They are a large and major international player, and I am not defending them, please understand that. (Recent Nigerian bribes come to light to Again discredit Cheney)

I read through most of the information and most of it goes back to the same instances, or prices of price gouging. Hell, go after the plumber who charges 175 on a Sunday afternnon for a house.

Very good reading, there is just no way to stop it. But for the record, read this and see if it changes your mind at all...




And the people killed recently in that convoy were probably all KBR, except for the two soldiers who didn't abandon the trucks and their drivers; but what about the other convoy escorts? I am not blaming the Army, but people who have demonized KBR folks in the media to make their own cheap political points will soon have to explain themselves to the families of those killed. Why portray KBR as the root of all evil when the people who make up that company are only supporting Americas troops, and not even armed. Do they have a problem with some us not sitting around on unemployment, but actually working and sending money home, while supporting the troops that they so glibly claim to support?

Kerry has vilified KBR in the past, now that KBR employees are dead on the side of the road will the media now ask him how these working people were gouging America and deserved their fate? No they will not. Because Cheney used to run this company does not mean that the people actually carrying the food, gas, equipment for our troops are connected politically.
