Halliburton CEO Superbowl Party in Iraq

This story in the L.A. Times almost made me throw-up on my laptop.

If American tax-payers are going to be billed for a fancy Super Bowl party, it could at least have been for the soldiers who are in harms way. I guess this what you ask for when handing out no-bid contracts to big corporations for the reconstruction of a country you’ve just bombed to bits. Gotta love the “spreading of democracy”!

  1. I’ve realized lately that I now expect things like this. I would be more shocked if there was an article that they decided not to have a party and bill us. Shock is now the norm.
