Now someone has to make and produce military needs, would people feel better if it was a company other than Halliburton? Or would nothing satisfy your conspiracy theories and speculation?
"Kellogg Brown & Root"...hmmm...that name sounds familiar. Ohh, that's right, it is KBR, the heavy construction and oil arm of Halliburton Co.
But wait a minute...wasn't Dick Cheney CEO of Halliburton from 1995 to 2000? Yes, that's right, despite having no business background, he was handed that position in 1995. Still, I guess the boys at Helliburton did owe Mr. Cheney a big favor after after he secured a nice 2.2 billion dollar revenue from government contracts for KBR while he was Secretary of Defense in 1992.
Last year Kellogg, Brown & Root took in $13 billion in revenues, according to its latest annual report. Currently Kellogg, Brown & Root estimates it has $740 million in existing United States government contracts, approximately 37% of their global business, most of which are in addition to the LOGCAP deal.
Kellogg, Brown & Root is no stranger to the business of war. From 1962 to 1972 the Pentagon paid the company tens of millions of dollars to go to South Vietnam, where they built roads, landing strips, harbors, and military bases from the demilitarized zone to the Mekong delta. The company was one of the main contractors hired to construct the Diego Garcia airbase in the Indian Ocean, according to Pentagon military histories.
To the uninitiated, the appointment of Cheney to the chairman, president, and chief executive officer positions at Halliburton in August 1995, made little sense. Cheney had almost no business experience, having been a career politician and bureaucrat. Financial analysts downgraded the stock and the business press openly questioned the decision.
