Lee451: MFAWG: Moonie says what?


/Remember when pointing this out was part of a vast liberal media conspiracy meant to undermine the POTUS during a time of war?

Pretty good. It only took two comments for the trolls to crawl out from under that dank outhouse.


What troll? He's right. People who were pointing out the link between government contracts to Halliburton (who owned KBR at the time) and Dick Cheney as the vice president of the US (and former CEO of Halliburton) were denounced as "Un-American". Look what happened, the companies took the cash and then did the minimum amount of actual work compared to the money they were paid to do it. Cheap work for max cash and pointing it out during the war was only done by those "liebruls" and those evil protesters who don't "Support our troops".

Obviously the only solution is to hire more private contractors to oversee the private contractors.

Awesome. I point out that shiat like this was widely reported in 2004 and 5 when it happened and dismissed by the Right Wing Noise Machine as BushBashing, and I'm a troll.

I'm kind of amazed that people still WANT to serve in the military anymore, with the many ways they screw over the troops, soon it's going to be an empty wasteland of people that have no where else to turn.

Hobodeluxe: HenryFnord: KBR. Thanks, Cheney!

if I'm not mistaken the Bush family had ties to that group too.
The connections between President Bush and Halliburton's Kellogg, Brown and Root are affirmed by ...business records of the Brown & Root firm and Brown Shipbuilding Co., relating in particular to building projects and joint ventures with other companies such as Zapata Offshore found in the executive files of George R. Brown at the Fondren Library of Rice University. Zapata Offshore was founded by George Herbert Walker Bush in 1954, after a successful partnership in 1953 with Hugh and Bill Liedtke, funded by Brown Brothers Harriman, owned by business partners of Prescott Bush, our president's grandfather. Zapata is connected numerous CIA intrigues in Latin America, including the overthow of a legally elected government in Guatemala that is indeed the prototype for CIA backed intervention. An historical outline is available at the Famous Texans website. ...

Yes well at least he did not call you a traitor and tell you to get the fark out of the US. 2001-2008 made me really bitter and opened my eyes to the stupidity of my fellow American.

edmo: We shipped ice to the desert? Really?

No wonder we're broke.


Look, in 1991 we shipped sand to Saudi to build a base in the middle of the farking desert because the sand where they decided to build a base was too fine - it literally would pour out of the sandbag weave. I thought it was stupid as hell when I was there, but I more or less understood that one. Shipping ice, though... Woof.

Good thing we have these private contractors doing things better and cheaper than the government.

The brave, patriotic Job Creators(tm) at KBR are just trying to save costs by feeding the bodies of dead troops to the live troops. Sure, it's an abomination and unholy and will inevitably result in hordes of twitching, zombified U.S. soldiers destroying the planet; but the important thing is that the KBR shareholders get a good return on their investments next quarter.

Except this time it's the POTUS whose department is complaining. Which is nice for a change.

Are you saying that this story has never been reported before, or that the Times isn't owned by the Rev. Moon?
