In what I think is an extremely shocking issue, The Washington Post talks about how KBR Inc., a company headed previously (for 5 years between 1995 and 2000) by current US Vice-President Dick Cheney, had the contract to help douse oil fires caused by the retreating Iraqi forces in the Gulf War. Apparently the US government waivered a previous ruling insisting on tenders for any sort of government assigned jobs and now allowed government agencies to select any organization/company for any Iraq reconstruction related jobs. In any other Latin American/African/Asian/some European country, this would be called CORRUPTION. I'd really like to know what the US government calls this. Leniency in times of war?
