Halliburton hired for storm cleanup

The Navy has hired Houston-based Halliburton Co. to restore electric power, repair roofs and remove debris at three naval facilities in Mississippi damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

Halliburton subsidiary KBR will also perform damage assessments at other naval installations in New Orleans as soon as it is safe to do so.
I had seen this reported the other day and had thought about blogging about it at the time, but didn't because so much else was going on.

However, it just struck me now that for an administration that couldn't pull its head out of its ass long enough to notice that there were over 10,000 starving people in New Orleans just eight blocks from the Superdome, and that then took an additional 3 days to figure out how to get them water, food, security and transportation out of the shithole in which they were forced to survive, that they had no problem at all figuring out a way to funnel another half a billion dollars to Dick Cheney's good buddies at Halliburton within a mere three days after the storm subsided.

At least they have their priorities straight.
