Dick Cheney's $250-Million 'Get Out of Jail Free' Card


www.thenation.com

What's the going rate for getting a former vice president off the hook in a major criminal case that involves charges of government corruption and raises concerns about violent wrongdoing and even murder?If you're Dick Cheney, it's roughly $250 million.That's the amount that Halliburton and its former subsidiary KBR Inc. are reported, by Nigerian officials and international observers, to have paid to get the government of the African country to drop bribery charges

So, this is what Halliburton and Cheney did and can do. This man has no care for anything but money. If you watch any video or read anything about what has happened in Nigeria you would be disgusted. This is the man that ran our United States for 8 years. His company is now fracking the natural gas shale reservoirs and poising people's water supplies. Some here still want on ATS want the neocons to control our nation? not me say I.

So, in order to avoid charges for bribery, they utilized more bribery.

You've got to love corporate justice.

The way I see it, Dick Cheney is not out of the wood work yet. At least the Nigerians got some compensation for putting up with him. With the 9/11 movement getting stronger this guy is going to have some tough questions to answer soon.

As much as people want to single out Chaney and Halliburton, this happens all the time. Since the Government of Nigeria is bringing the charges, they are within their rights to ajudicate it in any manner they see fit for their intrests.

Even if it means accepting a payoff...
