Can anyone think of a better reason for forcing a war on the American people? Iwonder how much Cheney (Cheney family?) made in blind trusts or just havingthe money waiting for him just as soon as he was out of office?We all now know that:
$2.2 Trillion spent a war based on falsehoods ranging from exaggeration to plainuntruths to make the case for war.
The Republican administration’s primary justification
for launching the Iraq War was an alleged WMD program that did not exist. The coterieof delusional neoconservatives surrounding Bush and Cheney contributed to asystematic process of cherry-picking dubious intelligence and outright manipulation of evidence in order to satisfy a political decision that had already been made to change the
 
regime in Iraq through a war of aggression. This unnecessary 2.2 Trillion dollar expense contributed directly to the fiscal mess we are in right now that was alsoexacerbated by the tax cuts to the wealthy. Now we know why slick Dick Cheney keeps saying that he would not do anythingdifferently if he had the chance. Hey, the dude lied and is a War Criminal...what are wegoing to do about it?

he accounting of the financial cost of the nearly decade-long Iraq War will goon for years, but a recent analysis has shed light on the companies that mademoney off the war by providing support services as the privatization of whatwere former U.S. military operations rose to unprecedented levels.
 
Private or publicly listed firms received at least $138 billion of U.S. taxpayer money for government contracts for services that included providing privatesecurity, building infrastructure and feeding the troops.
 
Ten contractors received 52 percent of the funds, according to an analysis bythe Financial Times that was published Tuesday.
 
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 was given $39.5 billion in Iraq-related contracts over the pastdecade, 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, a deal that led to a Justice Departmentlawsuit over alleged kickbacks, as reported by Bloomberg.
 
Who were Nos. 2 and 3?
