    When putting into perspective the notion that Kerry overstated the number of Security Council ambassadors that he met with, compare it with the rampant corruption of the current administration's handouts to Cheney's former firm. This, from AP:

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The FBI has begun investigating whether the Pentagon improperly awarded no-bid contracts to Halliburton Co. (HAL), seeking an interview with a top Army contracting officer and collecting documents from several government offices.

    The line of inquiry expands an earlier FBI investigation into whether Halliburton overcharged taxpayers for fuel in Iraq, and it elevates to a criminal matter the election-year question of whether the Bush administration showed favoritism to Vice President **** Cheney's former company.

    FBI agents this week sought permission to interview Bunnatine Greenhouse, the Army Corps of Engineers' chief contracting officer who went public last weekend with allegations that her agency unfairly awarded a Halliburton subsidiary no-bid contracts worth billions of dollars in Iraq, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

    Asked about the documents, Greenhouse's lawyers said Thursday their client will cooperate but that she wants whistleblower protection from Pentagon retaliation.


    "I think it (the FBI interview request) underscores the seriousness of the misconduct, and it also demonstrates how courageous Ms. Greenhouse was for stepping forward," said Stephen Kohn, one of her attorneys.

    "The initiation of an FBI investigation into criminal misconduct will help restore public confidence," Kohn said. "The Army must aggressively protect Ms. Greenhouse from the retaliation she will encounter as a result of blowing the whistle on this misconduct."

    FBI agents also began collecting documents from Army offices in Texas and elsewhere in recent weeks to examine how and why Halliburton got the no-bid work in places like Iraq.

    "The Corps is absolutely cooperating with the FBI, and it has been an ongoing effort," said Army Corps spokeswoman Carol Sanders. "Our role is to cooperate. It's a public contract and public funds. We've been providing them information for quite a while."

    Wendy Hall, a Halliburton spokeswoman, said the company is cooperating with various investigations, but she dismissed the latest revelation as election politics. She noted Congress' auditing arm, the Government Accountability Office, found the company's no-bid work in Iraq was legal.

    "The old allegations have once again been recycled, this time one week before the election," Hall said. "The GAO said earlier this year that the contract was properly awarded because Halliburton was the only contractor that could do the work.

    "We look forward to the end of the election, because no matter who is elected president, Halliburton is proud to serve the troops just as we have for the past 60 years for both Democrat and Republican administrations," she said.

    i still state that it wouldnt matter who went to war for what. whoever is president, him and his buddies will make money off of it some way some how because capitalism runs very strong here in America. and on Kerry's war record HE is the one who choose to run on it. i wouldnt be such a big deal if he had just left it alone but he choose to bring up and run on the fact that he is a war hero and if he then refuses to release his military papers, AND the simple fact that he has been proven a liar on most of what he says he stands for speaks alot to his charector. Kerry was discharged from the Navy in '72. he didnt recieve an honorable discharge until several years later. now can anyone in the armed forces step up and say just how screwed up that is?

    Hey, both of my grandfathers served in WWII and one received a honerable status 2 years after he was discharged, theres no doubt he deserved it.

    hmmm my understanding is that Kerry was completely discharged in '72. it was Carter who changed it from what ever the original ruling was to honorable. im not going to argue on you grandfather as i know nothing on that matter. things may have been different during that time. but what i understand is that Kerrys situation is extreamly irregular. if he would just release his military record like every other presidential candidate has done be it Bush, McCain or who ever it would clear up and straighten out alot of things.

    I'm sorry Rattler but I just don't see your point. You can take any bit of information and twist and turn it to make it read the way you want it to. I think the facts speaks alot louder than qoutes from ambassators. It's like you said to Caps, we'll never agree on this so lets move on.
