The Obama Administration would protect him.  No doubt in my mind. 

Of course.  It's the Ford Doctrine.

Protect your predecessors, and your replacement will protect you.

Fuck 'em all. They are all the same. All of these political bastards, and people trying to push me into politics, like I wouldn't be tainted by that poison.

"Authorities in the West African nation are probing Halliburton, Saipem and Technip for the alleged payment of $180 million in bribes to win a $6 billion liquefied natural-gas contract," Bala-Gbogbo added. "Panalpina is being investigated for illegal payments it allegedly made to Nigerian customs officials on behalf of Royal Dutch Shell Plc."




So they paid 180 million dollars in bribes to get a contract worth 6 million? 180 to get 6. I've read it ten times now and the math still doesn't add up for me.  If that is actually true they shouldn't arrest these people, they should come up with more contracts that bribery will help get.  Boost the economy and all that!

I, on the other hand, LOVE them.  In the same way I love gigantic asteroids that may one day strike the earth.

When I replied to the thread it was in direct response to his post. There weren't any other replies yet, and it didn't warn me that replies had been made. Weird. I edited it out, sorry Niamh.... didn't mean to push buttons, not sure what happened.

Is Cheney still pulling a million a year from Haliburton in "deferred compensation"?

Cheney and three other top executives could face sentences of three years in a Nigerian prison if convicted of the charges in the 16-count indictment, said Babafemi.

Also looks like having a former head of state on charges is stirring up the locals so riots if there's ANOTHER settlement. Woot!

"It was formally dropped today," Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) spokesman Femi Babafemi said. He said the Nigerian government had agreed to an offer made by Halliburton to pay fines totaling up to $250 million.

Halliburton, which has said the Nigerian charges have no legal basis, confirmed that they were dropped but declined additional comment.

The EFCC said it received the offer when it met with officials representing Cheney and Halliburton in London last week after filing 16-count charges at a federal high court in Abuja in a case dating back to the mid-1990

$250 million for charges that had no legal basis?  Yeah right.

Time to go file some entirely spurious charges against Halliburton, I'm thinking.  Apparently they just give money away if you make shit up and present it to a court.

Somehow, I think this plan wont quite work....
