Lockheed tops Pentagon '04 contracts: Halliburton defense contracts double
Blood for profit update ....

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Lockheed Martin again was the largest recipient of U.S. Defense Department contracts in 2004, but the company's total was a decrease from the fiscal 2003, the Pentagon said Thursday evening.

Lockheed, the world's largest defense contractor, received $20.7 billion in contracts. "There were a lot of opportunities in 2004," said Lockheed spokesman Tom Jurkowsky.

The Bethesda, Md.-based company received contracts for a Navy ship designed to fight in coastal waters and received considerable government information technology related work in 2004. Lockheed has also been the lead contractor on the Air Force's next fighter aircraft and is leading another joint service fighter program, which is the biggest defense contract ever at more than $200 billion

1. Halliburton defense contracts double.
I'm just emphasizing that in case anyone overlooked it.

Halliburton defense contracts double.

So, is that why Bush needed another $80 billion? Has the previously allotted money been accounted for? All of it?

Never mind. Rhetorical. I wonder if this is why Cheney has come out of his undisclosed location?

2. I don't think it's actually been spent on anything in Iraq. The previous
money that it is. Its kind of hard to find men to stand out there with the little orange cones and signs stopping traffic when most of the traffic is car bombs. Norm Coleman has the never to go after the UN when we got billions of taxpayer money floating who knows where in the world. We know some is going to in Halliburton execs pockets, but be sure they ain't the only ones stuffing it in as fast as they can.
