Halliburton is the giant Houston oil and energy firm, no not Enron, whose CEO from 1995 to 2000 was none other than our now Vice President Dick Cheney. It's also the parent company of multibillion dollar US defense contractor KBR, Kellogg Brown and Root. This is the company that has been providing so much of the logistics support for the American troops in Iraq, a source of considerable controversy and concern in terms of no-bid contracts and billions of dollars in questionable spending.
Well now Halliburton and Dubai are in the news again. Would this come under the term "outsourcing" do you suppose? Or might some other word be more appropriate here? Suggestions anyone?
