Questions are being raised about Halliburton getting so many "rebuilding" contracts. The Brits are angry they're not getting any, but according to this article in the NY Times Bush is trying to get the Pentagon to take control of awarding contracts. Fascinating. Is he trying to get all processes of the government to fall under areas he can control as "commander in chief," thereby subverting the balance of power set up in the constitution? He's sure making Clinton look like a weak president, that's for sure.
