A Conflict of Interest

TIME.com: The Paper Trail — Jun. 07, 2004

As if there was ever any doubt…

The e-mail says Feith approved arrangements for the contract “contingent on informing WH [White House] tomorrow. We anticipate no issues since action has been coordinated w VP’s [Vice President’s] office.” Three days later, the Army Corps of Engineers gave Halliburton the contract, without seeking other bids. TIME located the e-mail among documents provided by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group.

If anyone is suprised, then they haven’t been paying attention. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the conflict of interest that has been going on here all along. I mean really – no other bids? Former Halliburton CEO now the veep of the USA? Rush to war under false claims? Hello? Anyone getting this?
