There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies and against us." Newsweek referred to it as "Cheney’s Biggest Lie", yet said nothing about potential charges - as if mendaciously starting a war of aggression were not agreed to be "the supreme international war crime".[2] Cheney personally made millions of dollars from the Iraq war, while Halliburton made around $40 billion from contracts with the US government.[3]

Fracking“Researchers at Halliburton Co’s. Technical Center here working with Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists, have combined the oil well cementing technique with the hydraulic fracturing production stimulation technique to entomb radioactive wastes in an impermeable shale formation a thousand feet underground. The method used at Oak Ridge begins by mixing the waste with a cement slurry, pumping the mixture down a hole drilled into the Conasuaga shale and then fracturing the shale to create a horizontal crack. The crack fills with the mixture to form a thin, horizontal sheet several hundred feet across. The mix sets to permanently hold the radioactive waste in the formation.”1964
