Bush: U.S. probes possible Iran links to 9/11

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Iran is harboring members of al Qaeda, and the United States is investigating whether the Iranian government had a role in the September 11, 2001, attacks, President Bush said Monday.


Halliburton Subpoenaed Over Unit’s Iran Work

HOUSTON (Reuters) – A U.S. grand jury issued a subpoena to Halliburton Co. seeking information about its Cayman Islands unit’s work in Iran, where it is illegal for U.S. companies to operate, Halliburton said on Monday.

The oilfield services company, formerly headed by Vice President Dick Cheney, said it understood that the investigation of its subsidiary’s work in Iran had been transferred to the U.S. Department of Justice from the Treasury Department, which first initiated an inquiry in 2001.

Halliburton has a Cayman Islands unit, eh? Okay.

Not to mention that when Cheney was CEO of Halliburton, he railed against the economic sanctions imposed against Iran. Not that that stopped Cheney from doing business with Iran ANYway.

As I was putting this together, I realized that all this looks very bad for Cheney. And then it dawned on me . . . .


Is this some way for Bush to dump Cheney without making it look like he was doing it because Cheney was a drag on the ticket?
