The Forgery Flap, by Ray McGovern
Posted 7/14/2003
, Source not known
"Equally important, it was Cheney who launched (in a major speech on August 26, 2002) the concerted campaign to persuade Congress and the American people that Saddam Hussein was about to get his hands on nuclear weapons‹a campaign that mushroomed, literally, in early October with you and your senior advisers raising the specter of a ³mushroom cloud² being the first ³smoking gun² we might observe. "

January 30, 2004, New York Times
"But if you go through some of Halliburton's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission over the past several years, as I have, you'll see a company that goes to great lengths - literally to the ends of the earth - to escape paying its fair share of taxes to the government that has been so good to it."
HALLIBURTON'S BUILT-IN GOUGE, by Jim Hightower
January 5, 2004
"But here comes the real stinker: Halliburton's contract from the Bushites actually gives the company an incentive to overcharge us taxpayers. It guarantees a profit to Halliburton of between two and seven percent of its costs ­ meaning that the more cost it can put into each gallon, the more profit Halliburton gets."

VP Cheney Helped Cover-Up Pakistani Nuclear Proliferation In '89 So US Could Sell Country Fighter Jets, by Jason Leopold

"Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and top members of the administration reacted with shock when they found out that Abdul Qadeer Khan, Pakistan's top nuclear scientist, spent the past 15 years selling outlaw nations nuclear technology and equipment. So it was sort of a surprise when Bush, upon finding out about Khan's proliferation of nuclear technology, let Pakistan off with a slap on the wrist. But it was all an act. In fact, it was actually a cover-up designed to shield Cheney because he knew about the proliferation for more than a decade and did nothing to stop it."

Cheney and HAL
by William Greider, The Nation

"A rather different story is told by a class-action investor lawsuit against Halliburton, recently revived after languishing for four years.
