The contract that led to Guantanamo Bay being built was awarded to Halliburton while Cheney was CEO. The contract awarded to a subsidiary of Halliburton set aside money for "emergency construction capabilities" all around the world. This led to the construction of detention centers in Cuba, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Jordan.
 



rawstory.com< br />
A contract awarded to a Halliburton subsidiary in June 2000 while Vice President Dick Cheney was still at the helm of the firm spawned the detention centers at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, RAW STORY has discovered.

The contract, which allocated funds for “emergency construction capabilities” at “worldwide locations,” authorized the Defense Department to award Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown & Root any number of specific naval construction deals abroad.

The original deal, signed under Clinton, was also used for typhoon damage and breakwater repair of military bases abroad. After the invasion of Afghanistan, the Administration drew upon the open-ended agreement to construct detention centers at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay naval base for suspected members of Al Qaeda.

These contracts, signed by Clinton while in office, are another example of the strong links between Industry and Government. While originally intended for emergency's and storm repairs, it was quickly put to use in constructing a myriad of facilities post 9-11. The liberal use of the word “emergency” should be noted here; what else could be classed as an emergency and lead to further construction contracts?

While it would be impossible to separate Government and Industry, suspicion should be aroused that individuals who work in industry promote policies while in Government which lead to further
profits for their former employers. In this case however, it should arouse concern that deals made previous to 9-11 have been overly convenient and profitable for all concerned.

What should also arouse concern is that the deals were struck while the opposition was in power. Does this demonstrate that despite the apparent two sides to the argument, there is only one true power in Government and the Republicans and Democrats are just different flavors of the same thing?

Gitmo existed long before 9/11.

I do agree that the contract points more in the direction of expansion building and setting up of the detention centers.

"If it smells like a rat, looks like a rat and sounds like a rat, maybe it is a rat ..." best description of Cheney I can think of :p

Did I miss the part where it says Gitmo was setup before 911, or is the title misleading?

I expected some direct link to construction there that would indicate plans for a war?

Guantanamo Bay Military base history.

Yeah I would say the title is a bit missleading.

It should be stated clearer that the current Detention center at Gitmo was planed before 9/11, not Gitmo in general, because that has been there for nearly a century.

Reminds me of a Simpson quote where Principal Skinner is stealing equipment from a Prep school infront of Lisa:

Lisa: Principal Skinner, thats stealing
Skinner: Welcome to Cheney's America

What is the definition of fascism?

Unfortunately these days, this definition can be applied to too many nations worldwide...and it doesn't seem to matter who's in power - republican or democrat, liberal or conservative

There has been an ongoing systematical process of events deliberately conducted by the NWO/Bildgerberg society to install a one world government, America is simply at the head of this vessel. Believe it or not, the American constitution is a direct enemy of what stands in the way of their objective. Fortunately, for now, our founding fathers had the awareness to fortify the foundation of the American constitution to prevent the instantaneous takeover of our sovereign land. So accept it or pass it off as pure conspiracy jiberish, the covert war against the American constitution has been taking place since the beginning of this century.

Bill Clinton's liberal check writing during the 90's has systematically played into today's objective (funding) of the war against terrorism. From the self-inflicted Columbia Shuttle explosion halting the ISS to delay other nations from acquiring sensitive scientific technologies during a time of war (also divert funding), to the inside so called terrorist attacks carried out on 9/11 by the Israeli Mossad....

Each strategic turn of events plays into the systematic takeover of the world!

Buwuhahhaaaaaaaa!
