Deal Not Worth a Mention...

#1
If it hadn't been for me being an inveterate news reader it seems this is no longer important to most folk as it was buried in a business section in a small paragraph.. but..

Haliburton, VP Dick Cheney's old friends, have been given a $ 5000 million dollar contract to do some stuff in Iraq, untendered, and the possibility exists that there is more work to be done later, aslo under a unbid presentation...

Not questioning their qualifications, just the optics.. but, since the story is so small and rates a para only in the press, I guess, the cynics have decided its not worth rattling Dubya over this..

still...

Actually my bad... should have read $ 500 million and its to build a Club Med prison at Gitmo to replace the ' temporary facility which is under so much adverse publicity of late..with real cells and proper controls there won't be the accusations that GITMO is a gulag or concentration camp/prisoner of war slum...

and, a good US company gets the money so it, too, doesn't flow offshore...
