by CONSPIRACY PLANET
You can't beat the combination of War Profiteering and Crony Capitalism in the Bush-Cheney Cabal.
Vice President Dick Cheney, the former head of Halliburton, who has steered numerous no-bid no-compete contracts for the War on Iraq to his former company holds Halliburton stock options which have risen 3,281% since 2004, says New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg, in a report published by Raw Story (http://rawstory.com/news/2005/Cheneys_stock_options_rose_3281_last_1011.html)
Lautenberg claims that Cheney's stock options, which were worth $241,498 a year ago are now valued at more than $8 million.
“Halliburton has already raked in more than $10 billion from the Bush-Cheney Administration for work in Iraq, and they were awarded some of the first Katrina contracts," Lautenberg said in a statement. "It is unseemly for the Vice President to continue to benefit from this company at the same time his Administration funnels billions of dollars to it. The Vice President should sever his financial ties to Halliburton once and for all.
