Whitewater accuser to audit Halliburton Iraq contract
The former investigator for the now defunct Resolution Trust Corporation who filed the original criminal referral against the Clintons in the Whitewater affair, has been hired to run the department of the Pentagon's Inspector General's office which will be responsible for auditing the Halliburton and Bechtel Iraq contracts.

2. Well isn't that special!
Who did the "hiring"?

I assume the GAO will have some interest in those contracts as well.

5. irony

How perfect for Halliburton and Bechtel.

7. meta-irony?
I prefer the term "bullshit" in cases like this...

it's becoming harder and harder to keep track of all their evil-doings nowadays... all part of the plan I suppose..

11. Did you expect anything less?
Remember, do not interrupt your opponent when he's making a mistake. No one will believe that investigation will be objective.
