    That's usually part and parcel of a govt contract. The Govt can terminate it at anytime for any reason. It's obvious that this was deliberately excluded from this contract. Before Haliburton spun KBR off , Cheney dominated pentagon contracting when it came to KBR.

    Many of you probably can recall when one of the contract Auditors objected to a five year sole source/no bid contract with them, she was summarily taken off the job and eventually retired I believe. "Bunny..." I can't recall her last name.

    Cheney's stock options went up 3300% the last I read (years ago) when Halliburton's stock tore the roof off from getting income benefits of a wholly owned subsidiary getting crazy contracts where they bought fleets of brand new 4 wheel drive max luxury vehicles. If one got a flat . They just left it on the side of the road. There was so much "in -your -face" obnoxious behavior during their non- performance of these contracts, it probably served as a template for the Banks later in terms of committing fraud with little or no consequence.

    It was the ultimate conflict of interest . Cheney just didn't give a fuck about the impropriety of a VP owning options in a company that was getting billions and billions for a War they he initiated. No one questioned the man.  He had no compulsions about seeking revenge to make an example of someone who dared question his authority no matter if it was illegal.

    Handing the banks the nations wealth is right up there with this and it is killing people. But I expected this from a GOPer. I didn't expect the Bank shit from a Dem.  The fact that Cheney was never investigated by Obama is just another oozing sore on his presidency.

    I would love to see an attorney use Obama's reasoning in a capital ax murder case that had 44 credible witness', some still with blood droplets on their face, 55 different angles of videos and images and 121 audio sources .
