  •  And "KBR".......... (none)
    With cash there is no "trail", we'll never know who all took the money and ran.  And none of them are going to talk about it that's for sure.

    It's really sickening isn't it?  That money belonged to the people of Iraq, and should have been used for the rebuilding of the country.

    May a pox visit those that deceived the Iraqi people and stole that money!

    •  Hold on there (none)
      Before you start accusing KBR of anything, read the article:

      "Any attempt to criticize KBR for its role in this perfectly normal and legal part of the contracting process is unfounded," Cathy Mann, a Halliburton spokeswoman, said in an e-mail. "Our requests for redaction were just that -- requests. These redactions were ultimately reviewed and evaluated by [the government], and some were accepted and some were overruled."

      You see, the government has already reviewed this and found it to be OK.

      Just relax--It's not like the goverment has any unseemly ties to Halliburton/KBR or anything.  

      Sheesh!

      Say what you want about the tenets of Neo-Conservatism, but at least it's an ethos
