Halliburton Co. and other U.S. contractors are being paid at least $1.9 billion from Iraqi funds under an arrangement set by the U.S.-led occupation authority, according to a review of documents and interviews with government agencies, companies and auditors.

Most of the money is for two controversial deals that originally had been financed with money approved by the U.S. Congress, but later shifted to Iraqi funds that were governed by fewer restrictions and less rigorous oversight.

So yeah, why does this not surprise me? Its funny that we are on the way to a record breaking deficit and we are still in Iraq, spending billions of dollars we dont have.
Also, lets all thank Mr. Chaney for his great work!! Im sure all the employees at Halliburton love him...:]

That's the Vice President of the United States taking that money.

It is without a doubt the most costly abuse of power this country has had to endure...

And people are still trying to tell me it's not about money..they're right, it isn't about America's money..it's about Cheney and Bush and the Bin Ladens (who make up half of America..That doesn't count!) and who ever else deals with those people....

Tharuz, not everyone likes to bend-over the way you do.

A lot of us don't like to be brutalized by the people we put in office.

To each his own...
