What do you expect? Of course,all of the nutjobs on the right will deny it,but when the Supreme Court 'INSTALLED' Bush and Cheney back in 2000 this was all part of the plan. "The Plan For A New American Century" (Google it) Which set the stage for the implementation of that plan where our military would fight for Israel,(as usual),by invading all of the Arab countries deemed a threat to Israel,and along the way of course,true to our American values,someone would make some money off of it,that someone being Dick Cheney,with George Bush and others getting a 'cut' of the profits. Cheney had run Haliburton,a corporation that did everything our military had done for itself,from providing to and clothing to health care,and there are other off-shoots of Haliburton like,KBR or Bechtel,who do construction and provide secuirty,that's to make up for the lack of military because Bush didn't think it was necessary to send as many troops as his generals suggested. And with him being a real War Hero himself and all,he knew better. So,no surprise,they had to 'supplement' our military with 'PRIVATE CONTRACTORS' and the money started rolling in! In 05 or 06 Haliburton was charged with overcharging the United States Government $96 MILLION DOLLARS FOR FUEL! And instead of the agreed upon price of doing the soldier's laundry at $100 per man/woman,Haliburton also found it necessary to charge $1,000 per person! There is so much money going out of this country and into Iraq and Afganistan that there are'nt enough Government 'AUDITORS' to keep track of it all! Thta might be how $35 BILLION got lost! It's the old Wild,Wild West out there in them deserts,where members of those American security companies can do pretty much anything they want,cause they don't have to abide by Iraqi or Afgan laws,or even ours,and they're getting paid small 'FORTUNES' to do it! See for yourself on YouTube,just type in 'BLACKWATER',and watch all the fun they're having. Oh yeah,those Americans we saw a few years back who were attacked and their bodies dragged through the streets and hung from an overpass,they worked for Haliburton. Yes,they were Americans,but they also chose to 'WORK IN A WAR ZONE'! And for that reason,they were making really good money as well. Though,I'd doubt it was worth dying for. But,with the many times that was shown on t.v.,it was always made out like they were 'SOLDIERS',or something,and they were'nt. Come on,people say what a great president Bush was,but how bad was he when people had to go to work in a 'WAR ZONE' to get a job?! How many soldiers have died from being 'ELECTROCUTED' because the 'PRIVATE CONTRACTOR' that installed the showers on the military bases 'DID IT WRONG'?! Bechtel was paid $9 BILLION DOLLARS to build '21 Health Clinics' in Iraq,but actually built 'TWO' or 'THREE',because they said that they could'nt because their people 'WERE COMING UNDER FIRE'! Again,'THEY'RE IN A FREAKIN''WAR ZONE'! And they knew it when they took the contract! Best part,they got to 'KEEP ALL THE MONEY' because they had what they call-'AN ALL OR NOTHING CONTRACT',which means,that some way,some how,they were able to 'KEEP ALL $9 BILLION DOLLARS' whether built 'ALL OF THE CLINICS',or 'NONE OF THE CLINICS'!(Google it and Check it out for yourself,cause it's all out there) So,tell me,'DID BUSH AND CHENEY DO ANYTHING 'WRONG'? Bush ought to go visit those families at Ft. Hood,after all,he and Cheney have killed more U.S. Soldiers than 'ANYBODY'! So,considering the people he's responsible for killing and all of the money he and Dick have made at 'THEIR EXPENSE',that's the least he can do.
