It would seem that the Kerry crowd has a great deal of self interest in keeping the Halliburton story going.

(I'm on a friends dial up so searches are difficult....here's some "dot connecting" so far.)

"While she has been critical of Halliburton, liberal columnist Molly Ivins notes that "Democrats are involved in similar dealings." She cites former CIA director John Deutsch, who serves on the board of Schlumberger. <<<<< A French competitor of Halliburton.

She also failed to note that another board member of Schlumberger is Jamie Gorelick, deputy Attorney General under Clinton. She was accused by Bush Attorney General John Ashcroft of erecting the "wall" that kept U.S. intelligence agencies from cooperating to discover and prevent the 9/11 terrorist plot.

Deutsch, who also served under Clinton, could have been prosecuted for mishandling classified information. But Clinton gave him a last minute pardon before he left office.

Jamie Gorelick is a partner at Wilmer, Cutler, Pickering, Hale & Dorr
She also serves on several boards, including the Fannie Mae Foundation,<<<<<<<<< the head of Fannie was appt.ed by Clinton and Fannie is under investigation for overstated profits) United Technologies Corporation, Schlumberger,

Limited, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Harvard College Board of Overseers<<<<<<< Harvard is a big contributor to Kerry Camapaign???
