Former Vice president Dick Cheney has been charged in Nigeria with bribery due to activities of his former company, Halliburton. Perhaps, it is good news that Dick did not attempt to get involved in illicit activities in America, but the Nigerians believe that his company was involved in their naiton. According to prosecutor Godwin Obla, “there are conspiracy charges and giving gratificaiton to publi officers. There is also a charge of obstruction of justice.”
The issue revolves around contracts between Halliburton and some Nigerian officials. Halliburton officesin Lagos have been raided. Who knows, given that Barack Obama is not interested in having Americans know the truth about the war in Iraq, maybe the Nigerians will help us dig deeper into the heart of Darth Vader Cheney.
