The Halliburton Smear
    #1936172 - 09/20/03 08:20 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

An excerpt from http://www.townhall.com/columnists/richlowry/rl20030918.shtml --

The Clinton administration made the same calculation in its own dealings with Halliburton. The company had won the LOGCAP in 1992, then lost it in 1997. The Clinton administration nonetheless awarded a no-bid contract to Halliburton to continue its work in the Balkans supporting the U.S. peacekeeping mission there because it made little sense to change midstream. According to Byron York, Al Gore's reinventing-government panel even singled out Halliburton for praise for its military logistics work.

So, did Clinton and Gore involve the United States in the Balkans to benefit Halliburton? That charge makes as much sense as the one that Democrats are hurling at Bush now. Would that they directed more of their outrage at the people in Iraq who want to sabotage the country's oil infrastructure, rather than at the U.S. corporation charged with helping repair it.

More interesting stuff in the full article. Go ahead and click the link if the whole Halliburton thing is of interest to you.

That is the best debunking of that retarded premise I have seen yet.
