Hmm.

This is the same guy behind the 47% tape.

  • Words full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
I watched the video to hear what the title implied and it wasn't there. There was the typical 'be wary of the military industrial complex' but that doesn't say at all 'Cheney used 9/11 to profit Halliburton'. Instead, it was a warning against one company dominating a field so much, they don't have competition and could direct policy.

Yep.  Paul is making inroads and now he's going to get the Christie treatment.

Well, if Rand still believes Cheney maneuvered the Iraq War to benefit Halliburton, he's as nutty as his old man.

On the other hand, Americans have war fatigue, and Cheney is old news with his Kristol-like urgency to want to engage Iran militarily.

The headline implied that the statement is recent ("says" versus "said") and that Paul directly linked Cheney's motivation with Halliburton, which he did not.  Taking a five year old comment out of context is just a feeble attempt to stir things up in the hopes that Republicans will destroy themselves.

Rand Paul notwithstanding, granting sole-source (no bid) contracts to Halliburton was very, very stupid and arrogant.

It was the type of thing which wore, and wore on a rational person., such as me. I asked myself, why do such an openly transparent thing, when it was not necessary?

Exactly.  No other company provided the comprehensive services that Halliburton did, which is why Clinton sole-sourced them in Kosovo and Bush sole-sourced them in Iraq and Obama's administration CONTINUED that sole-sourcing.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what antitrust law is supposed to prevent.

Antitrust is not consideration in matters of military preparedness and safety of our troops. War should not be a commercial enterprise subject to market forces. The only consideration should be how to "get 'er done" without suffering losses.
