Well-oiled political machinery

Another major scandal is brewing about Halliburton, the oil conglomerate once headed by Dick Cheney (you can get the details on Alternet). The company is now being investigated for a $180 million bribery scheme in Nigeria that occurred during Cheney's watch. As much as Halliburton is in the news, one has to wonder. How is it that these oily Halliburton execs seem to keep popping up in all the wrong places? And this is the company we tax-payers have entrusted with our hard-earned money? The same company that the vice-president used to head?
