    for the truth and for the higher interests of the country, a full non-partisan investigation is needed into this mess.

    That seems to fit the pattern of unprecedented actions I have been referring to in some of my posts.
    Some of the others that come to mind are the CIA agent, whose identity was revealed,
    Most recently, the NAACP/IRS investigation launched over a political speech.
    Even awarding the contract to Halliburton with out a bid, smells more of ol Boy cronyism. The excuse if not Halliburton then who? Or the urgency of reconstruction does not totally justify the action.
    All this will come out in the wash, someone will write a book about all these unusual and unprecedented practices. Time will tell.
    The accusations about Halliburton overcharging the government for meals and spending unaccounted for show a pattern as well.
    Surely someone will say but the Vice President does not work for Halliburton anymore, true. But this speaks something about who you are, your background, the kind of corporate culture you came from. The friends or associations you have, it says something about who you are as a person.

    So, should we also go back and investigate all the no-bid contract given to Haliburton by Clinton? C'mon guys. Who else can do what Haliburton does? Name them.

    Yes, there is not point in having a selective viewpoint.
    I think we all need to learn more about BCCI, Savings and Loan, or any other scandal that have government connections to, what is the word for having contrary interest to the public good.
    See if there are any lessons to learn.

    As long as donating money to a candidate is viewed as "free speech", we have in effect legitimized corruption for ANY candidate.

    It used to be the view point by many that all politicians are crooks.

    Apparently Parsons Corp... they got the contract in the north. If Haliburton is this corrupt, (and I'm not, nor have I ever said the VP was making money off this and was part of it) I would rather a Brit or Japanese company do this than them.
