And Katrina restoration money goes to: Halliburton!

Guess where the federal money goes to? Lets hope they actually do the work this time instead of saying they just cannot account for what happened to our tax dollars. This is Mississippi, not Iraq - they'd better do the repairs this time instead of just steal our money:

From the Houston Chronicle:

"Halliburton hired for storm cleanup

The Navy has hired Houston-based Halliburton Co. to restore electric power, repair roofs and remove debris at three naval facilities in Mississippi damaged by Hurricane Katrina."

For all the people bitching about Halliburton getting the job...

Name one other company that is capable of handling it.

There is only one company who can "restore electric power, repair roofs and remove debris"?

I don't care if they get the job though as long as there is accountability. Having federal money disappear isn't acceptable regardless of what company is in charge.

Halliburton Annual Sales 20 billion
Bechtel Annual Sales 16 billion
Schlumberger Annual Sales 12 billion

If it was not for Iraq these three would be about the same size and Bechtel would actually be the largest of the three.

Technip is smaller with only 7 billion in annual sales but that hardly makes it a small business.

A half truth is still a lie DU. Looks like you only provided part of the story....amazing what you find if you look at the entire article.


Halliburton hired for storm cleanup

The Navy has hired Houston-based Halliburton Co. to restore electric power, repair roofs and remove debris at three naval facilities in Mississippi damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

Halliburton subsidiary KBR will also perform damage assessments at other naval installations in New Orleans as soon as it is safe to do so.

KBR was assigned the work under a "construction capabilities" contract awarded in 2004 after a competitive bidding process. The company is not involved in the Army Corps of Engineers' effort to repair New Orleans' levees.

Just so long as the facts don't interfere with scoring political points, huh?

Cheney irrevocbly assigned any future profits from his options over to charity. Link

The documentation specifically states that it is unamendable and irrevokable.

Who else benefits and what is their relationshiup to Cheney? Just because Cheney himself isn't netting huge profits doesn't mean that he isn't "answering to his constituents".

I'll be waiting for the legal departments at Bechtel and Schlumberger to either sue, or prop up their own (owned?) politicians.
