Halliburton profits $39.5 Billion on Iraq War

US government finical analysis reveals who made the lion share of blood money for the Iraq war effort.  This company has been providing all types of auxiliary services as U.S. military operations in Iraq climbed  to stratospheric levels.
These auxiliary services included, but are not limited too, providing private security, building infrastructure and feeding and clothing US troops in Iraq.

The No. 1 recipient?

Houston-based energy-focused engineering and construction firm KBR, Inc. (NYSE:KBR), which was spun off from its parent, oilfield services provider Halliburton Co. (NYSE:HAL), in 2007.

The company procured  $39.5 billion in Iraq War contracts over the past decade, with many of the deals given without any bidding from competing firms, such as a $568-million contract renewal in 2010 to provide housing, meals, water and bathroom services to soldiers. 

And wouldn't you know it!  Vice president Dick Cheney OWNED stock in Halliburton while he was in office.   So, Vice president Dick Cheney started a war which profited him and his cronies upwards of 40 BILLION and counting.
