VIDEO: Halliburton Heist

In the "Creole trick," the perpetrator pretends to be the victim. Cheney sits in a wheelchair and the war profiteering is repressed. The $3 trillion war (cf. Joseph Stiglitz' book) is a theft of the present and the future that reduced American stature to a rogue state.
Since the start of the Iraq War, Halliburton and their former subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root have come under fire for receiving billions of dollars in no-bid contracts, and then failing to perform their duties adequately. And now they're facing a major lawsuit for some of these shoddy services, most notably for providing tainted supplies of food and water to American troops serving in Iraq.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr talks with Elizabeth Burke, one of the attorneys handling the newest lawsuit against the two companies.
