"There is a lot of talk coming from CitiGroup about how Dodd-Frank isn't perfect, So let me say this to anyone listening at Citi —I agree with you. Dodd-Frank isn't perfect. It should have broken you into pieces." -- Elizabeth Warren
Who gave the contract to KBR is not something for a "debate". Its a provable fact. The Pentagon gave the contract. There's nothin to "debate" there. You can debate whether Cheney greatly influenced thier pick, but the FACT is that the Pentagon, not Cheney, gave them the contract.
You can debate that you BELIEVE that it was improperly done, but a congressional investigation already disagree's with you and as far as the law goes, at this moment, it was legal and proper. That is the fact.
The FACT is that the pentagon stated they believed KBR to be the only company at the time that could do the work they needed in the time they needed it. Now, you can debate if you'd like whether or not this was influenced by Cheney, but the fact is that that was the Pentagon's findings.
My issue is not that Cheney didn't have influence in Halliburtons subsidiary being picked...I do think he may've urged it to happen. My issue is with your out and out lies, such as
"And unlike Dick Cheney... the guy who picked Halliburton to rebuild Iraq"
which is patently false unless Dick Cheney was somehow also a member of the pentagon at the time.
My opponent is a liar, and he can not be trusted
This election began like a car wreck; a bad thing, but I couldn't help but look away. It's now more like a beheading video; a sickening display where I can't hit the red X fast enough.
