>> An internal Halliburton probe has uncovered notes written between 1993 and 1998 that indicate Kellogg and its three partners in the TSKJ consortium considered a plan to make illegal payments in the hopes of landing the Bonny Island project, a huge, $5.5 billion natural gas liquefaction plant.<<
1993-1998? Square in the middle of Cheney's watch!
As for the rest of Cheney's vituperation, Kerry says it best himself: "I'm not going to have my commitment to defend this country questioned by those who have refused to serve when they could have and by those who have misled the nation into Iraq:"
Kerry lashes back at GOP, calls Bush 'unfit to lead this nation'.

Joh Kerry really does need two Americas so that his various statements can be fully appreciated. Try these:
You are the citizen soldiers who know that our service does not end on the battlefield--it begins there. You know that the pledge we took to defend America is also a pledge to protect the promise America offers. And let there be no doubt--when I am president, you will have a fellow veteran in the White House who understands that those who fought for our country abroad should never have to fight for what they were promised at home.

We will not quickly join those who march on Veterans' Day, waving small flags, calling to memory those thousands who died for the greater glory of the United States. We will not readily join the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
- From Sen Kerry's 1971 book The New Soldier, which I finally found and am trying to read.
Sen. Kerry is a member of the Legion - I suspect for political expediency only...
