Haliburton in New Orleans?
17 Sep 2005
What is Haliburton up to in New Orleans?
HALIBURTON & KATRINA? Anybody know anything about this? Saw this on the internet, wasn't able to find it again. Supposedly ABCNews has witnesses who saw people playing around with the New Orleans levees after the hurricane hit, causing them to break. The theory goes that if the poorer sections of New Orleans were flooded, the poor residents would be forced out, the government would declare eminent domain, take over and level the area, give the land to real estate developers who would then hire Haliburton and other Federal contractors to rebuild the areas with taxpayer money. Seems like another case of corporate welfare. Also seems like a case ethnic cleansing. Nature is blamed for the flooding and corporate America walks away with the goodies.
