Power corruption and lies

When will it ever end? I don't imagine anyone is surprised to find that Halliburton, who still count Vice President Dick Cheney on their payroll and who have been given lucrative no-bid businees contracts 'rebuilding' Iraq, are charging the US Treasury (that means you, taxpayers) almost double the going rate for fuel it imports into Iraq. In an ironic twist that we should be very familiar with by now, the companies who are offering the same services for half the price are the very same Iraqi companies we claim to be helping get back on their feet.

If you aren't sure where your patriotic duty lies in this issue, just follow the words of our illustrious leader pResident Bush: "Corporate leaders who violate the public trust should never be given that trust again."
