But this isn’t Texas. It’s Iran. U.S. companies aren’t supposed to do business here.
Yet, in January, Halliburton won a contract to drill at a huge Iranian gas field called Pars, which an Iranian government spokesman said “served the interests” of Iran.
“I am baffled that any American company would want to have employees operating in Iran,” says Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. “I would think they’d be ashamed.”[/quote]
Yet another Republican breaking ranks? She’ll be in the next train to Gitmo if she keeps up that sort of attitude.
Bet the criminal investigation on this is going to get buried … as does everything involving Halliburton. Perhaps they’ll arrest a couple of MSNBC reporters for raising it and scream about how “unpatriotic” the “liberal” media is for daring to report on this.
