>mistaken?

Yep. A Halliburton subsidiary has been given the task of managing and running
Iraq's oil system. Not only were they given this, they got it in a non-bid
situation, it was just handed over to them, no questions asked (by the
administration, at any rate).

Yeah? Doubtful. See, they're saying they'll control the outflow of oil to
help repay the costs of rebuilding Iraq...so that money is going to be diverted
to that source.

You think prices are gonna come down substantially at the pumps?

Not a chance.
