    The FBI has begun investigating whether the Pentagon improperly awarded no-bid contracts to Halliburton Co., seeking an interview with a top Army contracting officer and collecting documents from several government offices.

    The line of inquiry expands an earlier FBI investigation into whether Halliburton overcharged taxpayers for fuel in Iraq, and it elevates to a criminal matter the election-year question of whether the Bush administration showed favoritism to Vice President Dick Cheney's former company.

    FBI agents this week sought permission to interview Bunnatine Greenhouse, the Army Corps of Engineers' chief contracting officer who went public last weekend with allegations that her agency unfairly awarded a Halliburton subsidiary no-bid contracts worth billions of dollars in Iraq, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

    symbols: well, we gotta be a little suspicious when bush hires in a ton of former oil execs and 'family friends' to his cabinet, eh?

    the really big deal is that politicians have always been corrupt, it didn't magically start up when bush sr or jr took office. the really, really big deal is why the fuck won't 'the people' do anything about it? do we like being led around like sheep and kept in the dark about everything? is our culture that fucking tired?

    I think it might be in part due to growing up with us being told about freedom and how much we have here. With that most people dont see anything as propaganda, most importantly the nightly news. You know that liberal media we have here ... they couldnt be feeding us propaganda, its just the news.

    i agree.
    a lot of people have been lured into complacency with promises of "the land of the free" and "the greatest nation in the world"

    young affluent americans have not had to struggle for anything.
    even the poor in this country has become very used to their entertainment and their convenience. people are mostly content in their daily lives because the bottom line is a hot meal and some tv. most americans don't even have a concept of what it's like to live in a country that is rife with disease, or occupied, or dead broke. in the end, most americans can get what they want, so they are happy with the status quo.

    tax breaks have practically looked liked bribes to wealthy voters, imo.
    these people are going to vote for the person that keeps them rich, not for the person who works for the common good.
    and not enough poor people vote.
    caught in a cycle of poverty, they feel like their opinion doesn't matter.
    and really, it doesn't, until the entire lower class rises up as one.

    it would be cool if their was truly a cultural revolution in this country, but people are pretty much satisfied with the state of the nation.

    sadly, i think you're right. what might be worse is if the rumors of bush stealing votes or improper counting (or not counting) going on. that sinks deeper and deeper into the american psyche.

    Bread and circus. Television God, opiate of the masses.
    I don't have contacts into Bushs inner circle, but I do have this.
    I've posted these reciepts before but I will again since this seems to be an appropriate place. I have these in my possession from back in 2002 when I was in a military jail. They had us doing various work, some of which was recycling papers. During the height of the Enron scandal, we one day happen to get boxes, upon boxes, upon boxes of these halliburton financial records, dating over many years and documenting countless millions, perhaps billions of dollars. I of course stuck some in my pocket and complained very loudly. (This was before anyone even knew what halliburton was... so noone really knew or cared.)

    I'd have to agree with Casekonly.. I saw it when you posted it, but wanted to wait for some responses..

    Although, admittedly I don't fully understand the nature of those 'reciepts? work orders?', or what is truely happening.. Nevertheless, it's interesting as all get-out..
    But how does this say they got the job with no bids? I'm way off base right? LOL

    What the fuck could they be doing with that much sand?

    What can be done about it? Unless you have copious amounts of these doc's? Maybe there's actually a group or organization who actually have good intentions, maybe they also have 'buddies' and can get something done about these global fuckwads..
    Whatever you decide bro, tread carefully..
