Halliburton Hired to Repair Hurricane Damage in Gulf

This just in:

The Navy has hired Houston-based Halliburton Co. to restore electric power, repair roofs and remove debris at three naval facilities in Mississippi damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

Halliburton subsidiary KBR will also perform damage assessments at other naval installations in New Orleans as soon as it is safe to do so.

KBR was assigned the work under a “construction capabilities” contract awarded in 2004 after a competitive bidding process. The company is not involved in the Army Corps of Engineers’ effort to repair New Orleans’ levees.

  1. This is unbelievable! In our hour of most dire need we will funnel more money into the pockets of Haliburton and Dick Cheney?? Have they not raped and pilaged this government enough with their price gouging and incompetence in Iraq? Where are the hundreds of millions that were “lost” in Iraq?

  2. Remember this from Alternet.As members of the House and Senate negotiate over the energy bill this week, will they vote to further deregulate our utilities, and write a blank check to the oil industry in the process?
    Looks like a couple of chickens have come home to roost. BushCo and Cheneyburton must be held accountable, not get paid for what they had helped cause. Come on America, you’re going to get shafted by their greed and arrogance again unless you rise up against those phony opportunists. namasté
