RE: NYTimes.com Article: Halliburton Contracts in Iraq: The Struggle to Manage Costs

Come On! Mr. Fisher, get serious!  You really feel a "journalistic" (used loosely here) "FOR PROFIT" enterprise is capable of having an agenda?  Very naive, Mr. Fisher.
 
I was gonna go on about if any of us were to have thought back in March that if we said we were going to invade Iraq; have Saddam in custody; completely dismantle the Bath Party; restore Liberty to 25 million Iraqi's; reopen schools; provide desperately needed food and medical care; reestablish free enterprise; make serious headway into rebuilding infrastructure; (yes of course) open the flow of oil; add valuable history altering stability to a powder keg region of the world, positively influence the posture of Iran in its dealing with the U.S., and yes!, even win over the support of the Sunni religious leaders (the religious minority hardline Saddam loyalists) who have publicly called for the armed insurgents to stop the attacks, turn in their weapons and begin working "with" the US Military because the apparent good they are doing is obvious to the casual observer (except to the NYT); and if we were to say we would have all this accomplished by Christmas with fewer than 500 US Military KIA (God bless everyone of them and their families who have and continue to serve); you and the Times would have said "Impossible!", a completely unrealistic plan, this administration has ......! (yea whatever).
 
Well, it has happened, and all you and the Times can do now is b*tch about the cost and the Halliburton/Cheney connection.  Like I said, I was gonna go on about all this but I better not, someone else might unsubscribe.  We wouldn't want that now, would we.
