    From GWB's hometown newspaper and the hometown of Halliburton, it seems that more fraud from Cheney's former company... it is a shame we continue to give these guys contracts sans quality control..

    Doctor alleges water linked to infections
    Halliburton contends it met Army standards
    By DAVID IVANOVICH

    WASHINGTON - A U.S. Army doctor serving in Iraq has linked a small outbreak of bacterial infections among U.S. troops to allegedly contaminated water supplied by Houston-based Halliburton Co.

    In the latest broadside against Halliburton and its performance in Iraq, Senate Democrats produced an e-mail Friday from Capt. A. Michelle Callahan, a family physician serving at Qayyarah Airfield West, recounting how she treated six infections over a two-week period in January, at the same time she was noticing the water in base showers was cloudy and foul-smelling.

    Follow-up testing of the water soldiers were using to bathe, shave and even brush their teeth revealed evidence of coliform and E. coli bacteria, Callahan wrote in an e-mail to a staffer for the Democratic Policy Committee, led by Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D.

    This is the same company that was charigng the military a $20 per head unit cost for meals consisting of hot dogs and mac and cheese for our troops in Iraq.

    I wouldn't hire Halliburton to clean my gutters.

    All the while Halliburton dodges taxes through offshoring. What a racket.

    Works out well for the Dick, though.

    Haliburton And Barbara Bush have thirteen devastating hurricanes planned for the 2006 Season.
    Cynthia McKinney wants them all named with African American names.
    The first one will be called "Hurricane George Washington Roosevelt Leroy Jones"

    Haliburton is also planning a Nuclear Attack on Finland.

    I see Harry Boy just sampled some of his new batch of crystal from his bathtub lab.

    Dick Cheney is the largest shareholder (and still the ceo behind the scenes) of Haliburton.

    Ever notice all of the illegal non-bid contracts just seemed to Haliburton?
