Halliburton Is Moving Its Headquarters to Dubai

Hosted by

Run by the current Vice President, Dick Cheney, from 1995 until 2000, since the US invasion, Halliburton has become the largest civilian contractor in Iraq, with a no-bid contract for $2.4 billion just for starters. The current chairman, president and CEO, Dave Lesar, says he's moving the company to Dubai to focus on Eastern Hemisphere "oil exploration and production opportunities."  New York Senator Chuck Schumer says, "It just doesn't look good, doesn't sound good, doesn't smell good." Vermont's Patrick Leahy calls it "corporate greed at its worst."  Ken Silverstein, Washington Editor for Harper's magazine, is author of Private Warriors.
