44. Ironically, when it was Halliburton in iran, it was really blatant

An exiled Persian friend translated the rpoert form Iran for me. Iran was in negotiations with "Hallibuton (Cayman Islands), who we all know is a BIG supplier of oil and gas drilling equipment, right? The Iranian conservatives, of all people were raising a stink because they considered the deal "doing business with the enemy." But mainstream government officials, both in Iran and in the Cheney (dba Bush) administration saw nothing wrong with Iran dealing with a company whose "arm's length" legal distance from Halliburton (USA) was supposedly big enough to make the deal legal. If the judge is in your pocket, of course, exploding an atomic bomb in downtown Boston for the purpose of medical research is legal, too.
