Man, do I remember well all the outrage over government contracts going to Halliburton.
 
In fact, it was one of the things that Obama promised to; "I will finally end the abuse of no-bid contracts once and for all," the senator (Obama) told a Grand Rapids audience on Oct. 2. "The days of sweetheart deals for Halliburton will be over when I'm in the White House."
 
 
Well, they are over, now the people that "donated" to Obama's presidential campaign are getting those sweetheart deals... With no bid contracts...
 
 
 
inb4 (ohh, its fox news, so its not accurate, because the MSM will ignore this so it isn't news...)
 
and the typical character attacks against me...

"Corporate rivals of Checchi were reluctant to speak on the record about the no-bid contract awarded to his firm because they feared possible retribution by the Obama administration in the awarding of future contracts. 

"We don't want to be blackballed," said the managing partner of a consulting firm that has won similar contracts. "You've got to be careful. We're dealing here with people and offices that we depend on for our business."

Still, the rival executive confirmed that open bidding on USAID's lucrative Afghanistan "rule of law" contract was abruptly revoked by the agency earlier this year. 

"It's a mystery to us," the managing partner said. "We were going to bid on it. The solicitation (for bids) got pulled back, and we do not know why. We may never know why. These are things that we, as companies doing business with the government, have to put up with.""

Quick Google search turned up : http://afghanistan.usaid.gov/en/Activity.85.aspx . Looks like this same group has had the contract on this since 2003.... When was Obama elected?

This 'contract' under the radar ala George Bush, and not a peep.

The contract, awarded on Jan. 4 to Checchi & Company Consulting, Inc., a Washington-based firm owned by economist and Democratic donor Vincent V. Checchi, will pay the firm $24,673,427 to provide "rule of law stabilization services" in war-torn Afghanistan.

"Despite President Obama's long history of criticizing the Bush administration for "sweetheart deals" with favored contractors, the Obama administration this month awarded a $25 million federal contract for work in Afghanistan to a company owned by a Democratic campaign contributor without entertaining competitive bids, Fox News has learned".

Again Bush was wrong, and chastized, Obama OK....love the hypocracy.

Ok, an exaggeration.

Nobody here trusts the liberal mainstream media of the US (either) enough to be considered proper news

Anyone else noticed FE waits for everyone to call him an idiot etc then leaves. I think he has an alter ego or he's just a troll. No real person could be like this.
