The Art of War Profiteering

An attractive headline, yes? But clearly our friends at Halliburton care more about the profiteering than the art:
The vice president’s associations with Halliburton “raise concerns about the appearance of a conflict of interest or favoritism,” Judicial Watch argued, “particularly since the contract was awarded to KBR without a bidding process and because the contract was not announced to the public until after it was approved.”
The way to stop raising the concerns, of course, would be to stop announcing the contracts, even after they're approved!

That was simple. Let's hope they never hire me as a tactician.
