Most observers of the Bush White House will be aware of the firm Halliburton and its ties to VP Cheney.

In 1995 the multi-billion dollar oil services company hired Dick from the U.S. Department of Defense as CEO (with no business experience) and with his assistance quickly moved up the ladder from 73rd to 18th on the list of the government's top contractors.

The same year they were found guilty of defying a U.S. export ban by selling six pulse neutron generators to Libya. No, I don't know what they are either, but we probably didn't want Gaddaffi to have any.

Whether it's Cheney's stock options or bribing the Nigerian government or illegal no-bid contracts, you can rely on KBR/Halliburton to take the low road in any situation.

The latest news is that Halliburton are now being sued for human trafficking. With their atrocious track record, it somehow still surprises me that this company are still in business. Then I'm reminded that Cheney runs America, and the business of America is business.

More on this at Halliburton watch.
