Of Saddam Hussein's fate, Kerry said: ``It's absolutely impossible and irresponsible to suggest that if I were president, he wouldn't necessarily be gone. He might be gone. Because if he hadn't complied (with U.N. demands), we might have had to go to war.''
Rush will be all over this - I hope!

The no-bid contracts Haliburton received are called "Sole Source" contracts.
I had several of these from NASA, Space Station Program.
A sole source contract is awarded when the government acquires products or services available only from a sole source. In other words, the government only has or knows of a single vendor for the product or service.
Haliburton has a division that provides the unique service of putting out oil well fires.
Another reason was that the USA needed these guys in Iraq yesterday and the often year-long contract process would result in a contract award one year after the need.
