FBI Interviews Halliburton Whistleblower (Bunnatine)
Thursday November 25, 2004 4:31 AM


Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - FBI agents recently spent a day interviewing the Army contracting officer who raised concerns that the Pentagon improperly awarded contracts without competition to Halliburton Co., Vice President Dick Cheney's former company.

The Army Corps of Engineers contract officer, Bunnatine Greenhouse, was interviewed last week and now is gathering documents requested by the FBI and Army criminal investigators, her lawyer said Wednesday.

``They questioned her about all of her concerns, and they asked questions regarding potential involvement of people at higher-level positions,'' attorney Michael Kohn said in an interview.

The Associated Press reported last month that the FBI had expanded a criminal probe into allegations Halliburton overcharged the government for fuel, adding questions about whether the Bush administration had improperly awarded business without bidding to Halliburton in Iraq and the Balkans.

Both the company and the administration deny any wrongdoing. Cheney's office has said he has had nothing to do with the government contracts that have gone to the company, which he headed in the 1990s until joining President Bush on the 2000 Republican ticket.

On this courageous womans stand. She needs support like never before.

You are a hero Ms. Greenhouse and we all love you. Few people make a stand like you have and no one who knows what you have done could forget it.

Every freedom fighter loves you.

2. A genuine heroine
These are dark scary times for someone to step forward and tell the truth in our government. Bunnatine is a brave woman indeed. BushCo has tried all angles to trash her and hasn't been able to crack this woman's decency. A most sincere you go girl! to her and prayers for her safety.

3. Everyone take some time to send this woman some supportive
thoughts... if it helps her in some manner then great... if it does nothing.. no harm done. Persons such as herself and Bev Harris are true heroes... they are putting country before self... something the repugs cannot even dream of.
