Now we find out that they lied, cheated and screwed over the Gulf Coast of America, killing more Americans, and you believe that if their stock is climbing, that this is the only barometer Americans need apply? If there was profit it's all good?
You forgot to mention how they made a lot of that money in Iraq...but following through on your typical "make money at all costs" business plan. A plan which resulted in things like poorly wired electrical in shower rooms leading to potential electrocution of our own troops.
