Dick Cheney's Tainted Leadership Lives on at Halliburton 

It turns out that Haliburton refused to inform the military that water being used by troops was contaminated:
Troops and civilians at a U.S. military base in Iraq were exposed to contaminated water last year and employees for the responsible contractor, Halliburton, couldn't get their company to inform camp residents, according to interviews and internal company documents.
They prove that they simply do not care what allegations are brought against them:
Halliburton, the company formerly headed by Vice President Dick Cheney, disputes the allegations about water problems at Camp Junction City, in Ramadi, even though they were made by its own employees and documented in company e-mails.
Luckily, our elected officials are taking swift action to address this, right?
Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., who will chair the session, held a number of similar inquiries last year on contracting abuses in Iraq. He said Democrats were acting on their own because they had not been able to persuade Republican committee chairmen to investigate.
Tell me again how the Republicans love our troops? No body armor and poisoned water. This is what you people voted for?
