  •  heh, they caught it. paragraph's changed: (none)
    Cheney said that the allegations are false and directed voters to read the truth about Halliburton at FactCheck.com -- although he probably meant FactCheck.org, a project of the University of Pennsylvania that independently evaluates politicians' claims. Ironically, FactCheck.com forwards visitors to the Web site of left-leaning billionaire and Bush administration critic George Soros. Cheney said the Halliburton issue is nothing more than a "smokescreen" by the Kerry-Edwards campaign that is "repeatedly trying to confuse the voters and raise questions, but there's no substance to the charges."
    •  The thing about Halliburton (none)
      Cheney was prepared to respond to the deferred payments he's goten from Halliburton, and, according to factcheck.org, he's taken great pains to divest all his interest in the company, including taking out an insurance policy against the deferred payments. However, John Edwards, didn't bring up the deferred salary. He was talking about the investigations into Halliburton fraud and his dealings with terrorist nations while CEO of Halliburton.

      Cheney's response was to the wrong charge. I'm surprised this hasn't been picked up on more.
