Spurious thread title.......

...contrived obviously because the article itself
wasn't read, or comprehended.

Re: Spurious thread title....... Not at all

Hi, Del.

The thread title, Del, is an exact quote from the e-mail. The only thing spurious here is Cheney's denial, though technically it could be true -- an aide probably actually handled the arrangements, but with Cheney's knowledge and approval.

Still a big 'So?'

The contracts with Halliburton were nothing *new*, and Halliburton was the likely recipient given their experience in other areas. Specifically when there must have been some untoward conspiracy in the Clinton Pentagon for those no-bid contracts in Bosnia/Kosovo.

Anyway, if they had gone the bureaucratic route............

.....of competitive bidding, and actually selected a
company with the proper experience and capability, it
would probably have been the same, and lost a years
time in doing so.

Typical bureaucrat....follow the check list....damn the
reality of the situation.
