    If companies were banned for employees breaking the law none would exist. Nice "blame the group" mentality you've got there. Does the same apply to Muslims?

    The US government held them accountable, which is more than I can say for the government of Iraq or any of the Mideast ****holes you regularly defend.

    If a company was involved in numerous war crimes, corruption scandals, arms smuggling, murders, fraud, etc. The list goes on and on... Its not blame the group, its "how the **** is this group still around"?

    Does the same apply to Muslims?
    Well stating that its not "blame the group".

    The US government held them accountable,
    Yea.. The one case of many. The rest they refuse to hold accountable and the rest refuse to investigate or hold a trial for.

    which is more than I can say for the government of Iraq or any of the Mideast ****holes you regularly defend.
    What!? I "regularly defend" the Iraqi government? What in the **** are you talking about now? More baseless accusations from Ecofarm? I think so.

    Lol, the us government held them accountable. as you point out, the company hasn't been held accountable near enough. It was Dick Cheney's terrorist group.

    As though you're not obsessed with Obama. I didn't speak to Haliburton, this is about Cheney's darkly named terror group, Blackwater!!!
