Blackwater and Haliburton in the Phils.

THIS was posted by one of my friends on Facebook today. According to the investigative journalist who did a piece on the presence of these private military contractors in the Philippines, their operations here have the go-signal of the presidentita.

Btw, here's an old story in Vanity Fair regarding profiteering military contractors like Halliburton's subsididary, KBR. There have been separate accusations vs Blackwater as well about how it too has allegedly overbilled the U.S. gov't for its services.
