Further Along the Highway to Hell-iburton

Halliburton bribes: 'most significant file of corruption'
in Washington, says US official

"U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney was Halliburton's CEO when many of the alleged bribes were paid. He currently has not been accused of any wrongdoing."

"Bribing foreign officials is a criminal offense under the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act."

"In the United States, the scandal has been confined mostly to the business press, but Le Figaro reported an unnamed U.S. source who said it is "probably the most significant file of corruption" known in Washington."

But hey, as long as they are totally corrupt and under investigation, let's give them another billion dollars of taxpayers' money!
