Halliburton gets its share, but where has Cheney been?

Halliburton and a subsidiary will perform Katrina work for the U.S. Navy.

Topics: Dick Cheney, War Room,

It was only a matter of time.

From the Houston Chronicle: “The Navy has hired Houston-based Halliburton Co. to restore electric power, repair roofs and remove debris at three naval facilities in Mississippi damaged by Hurricane Katrina.” The Chronicle says that a Halliburton subsidiary, KBR, will also perform damage assessments at naval facilities in New Orleans.

KBR got the work under a pursuant to a contract awarded to it in a competitive-bid process in 2004, the Chronicle says. There’s no word on whether Dick Cheney was involved then, or really on what he’s doing now. The vice president has been on vacation in Wyoming for much of the week; when the Washington Post’s Dan Froomkin asked a White House spokeswoman Wednesday about Cheney’s plans to return to Washington, he was told: “He will certainly be coming back. I’m not able to tell you the day right now. I don’t have that handy.” Whenever the vice president returned, he’s back now. We have photographic proof: Cheney was in the White House Rose Garden this morning, chatting with Karl Rove as the president delivered his weekly radio address.
