Nigeria’s government has reportedly dropped bribery charges against former Vice President Dick Cheney and Halliburton, the energy firm he once headed, after the company agreed to pay a hefty settlement.
“Hefty settlement”, huh? [cough, cough] Bribe!
…the country’s government accepted a $250 million offer by Halliburton — an offer made within days of Nigeria filing a lawsuit against Cheney and Halliburton ….
“$250 million offer”? [cough, cough] Bribe!
The charges stem from a case involving as much as $180 million allegedly paid in bribes to Nigerian officials.
Ante up, boys! That’s $180 million, plus an extra $70 million for the people who didn’t get theirs.
Bribery is alive and well, heart surgery and all.
