Cheney Led Halliburton to Feast at Federal Trough
State Department Questioned Deal with Firm Linked to Russian Mob
Under the guidance of Richard Cheney, a get-the-government-out-of-my-face
conservative, Halliburton Company over the past five years has emerged as a
corporate welfare hog, benefiting from at least $3.8 billion in federal
contracts and taxpayer-insured loans.
One of these loans was approved in April by the U.S. Export-Import Bank,
which guaranteed $489 million in credits to a Russian oil company whose
roots are imbedded in a legacy of KGB and Communist Party corruption and
infusions of drug trafficking and organized crime funds, according to
Russian and U.S. sources and documents.
