Will the former vice-president also explain to the American people just how President Bush was led into the Iraq War? In my opinion the only reason we are there is that the former vice-president was the former chairman of Haliburton and wanted to make more money. Haliburton and their wholly owned subsidiary, Brown & Root Construction Co., received a NO BID CONTRACT from the Pentagon to rebuild Iraq. They have been paid Billions and the American taxpayer is still on the hook for more billions until this senseless war is halted. I e-mailed his office while he was still vice-president and was informed that his stock had been placed into a blind trust. The trustee would have to not only be blind but deaf and stupid not to invest in more Haliburton stock. Before you write me off as a yellow dog democrat I am a former life long republican and in my opinion this should be investigated. We have lost thousands of our best young men and women in this needless war all, in my opinion, because of greed.
