Making America safe for corruption...


Republicans defeated a Democratic measure calling for an investigation into waste and fraud in military contracts today as the Senate engaged in an emotional debate over the Iraq war.
By a 52-to-44 vote, the Senate rejected the proposal by Senator Byron L. Dorgan, Democrat of North Dakota, calling for a panel like the one led by Harry Truman when he was a Senator, which uncovered many abuses in military spending during World War II.
Mr. Dorgan said that military spending is the worst it has ever been "right now -- right now! I think the American taxpayers are being fleeced."

Haliburton will live to feed another day.
