Freer than most, not nearly as free as it should be.

You responded with:


Damien, I read your link but frankly I am not impressed. It's a fact that
there are not many organizations that can provide the services that
Halliburton can and do so in a war zone, and so they charge accordingly. I
can't see where they did anything Enron level bad much less committed a
government grade horror. I'm not saying Halliburton is incapable of being
a little naughty from time to time, but compared with routine government
grade evil it's a little like a prison guard at Auschwitz raging about the
injustice of it all because somebody put a whoopee cushion on his chair.
