what about 9 billion dollars that are unaccounted for? Last I remember, the 9 billion dollars that is unaccounted for is part of the United Nations and the Oil for Food program, which is extremely corrupt. The scandal involves France, Germany, Russia, China, the UN, and several middle eastern countries including Iran and Iraq.

What about Haliburton? Ok, most everyone in the democratic party always brings this up. As you know, Haliburton is a transnational company based in the US that specializes in this type of contract work. It has many divisions and you have probably used their equipment before. For example...gas stations that use Wayne branded gas pumps...its part of Dresser company which is a subsidiary of Haliburton. Anyways, the reason that Haliburton is used in most contracts is because they have historically had the most experience with what is taking place. They were used in Operation Desert Storm to help rebuild in the early 1990's and have a long history with both the democratic and republican parties. There is only 1 other company in the world that I know of that remotely comes close, which is Schlumberger which is based out of France yet has a sizeable US presense. Both companies have worked together before, but Schlumberger has outsourced portions of contracts to Haliburton in the past.

Haliburton was used to help rebuild after the 1991 Gulf War (Bush 41) and Bill Clinton also employed them many times in the middle east using no-bid contracts which created overruns by the democratic administration at the time. If it is so bad to use Haliburton, why wasn't anyone complaining to Bill Clinton and the democrats about using Haliburton?? It's not a matter of political favors...it is just using who is most qualified and has the best depth of knowledge for these types of jobs, which in this case is Haliburton.

How come Bin Laden was allowed to walk?
Well, the 9/11 commission disagrees with that statement, but whatever. What happened in Afghanistan when Bin Laden was trapped by coalition forces and he was allowed to get away? It cuts both ways, people make mistakes, but I'm not sure Bin Laden was allowed to get away from Clinton, at least according to the 9/11 comm.

I think you forgot to mention Jamie Goerilick, who created "the wall" between the CIA and the FBI. In the mid 1990's, she was in charge yet prohibited the communication between these organizations. Now yes, mistakes do happen. However the intentional seizure to communicate...not a good idea there. The CIA is the off-country agency that provides intelligence we need to know, and the FBI works stateside. Both agencies need to communicate with each other to be effective. Do you think that creating "the wall" made sense? Also, why was Jamie Goerilick allowed to be on the 9/11 commission when she was part of the problem in gathering intelligence?
