What Money Cant' Buy in the U.S.

Halliburton, the company that for decades has gone to war with the US Army, is under sharp attack at home. In particular, the US Treasury has reopened an investigation into whether Halliburton violated US sanctions against Iran and Libya by doing business with the countries through a Cayman Islands subsidiary.
Harried Halliburton executives are having to defend the company against charges on everything including price gouging in Iraq, sanctions busting in Libya and Iran and bribe-paying in Nigeria.

Via CaribPundit.

This is fascinating, especially when compared to the corruption scandals that have rocked France, Italy, and Israel (here and here).
