Halliburton/Cheney Investigated For Iran Deals
A Treasury Department investigation into the activities of Halliburton in Iran is looking at potentially suspicious business contacts between Iran's oil company and Halliburton at the time it was headed by Dick Cheney. According to documents dating from 1997 and 1998, a Dubai-based Halliburton subsidiary received at least a dozen tender offers from Kala Ltd, the wholly owned British subsidiary of the National Iranian Oil Company.
Investigators are trying to figure out if those deals were concluded and if they violated U.S. sanctions against Tehran, congressional sources said. "This would be the first evidence that Halliburton was actively seeking business in Iran under Cheney in possible violation of U.S. laws," said Dan Katz, the chief counsel for Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey, who obtained the documents as part of an effort to tighten U.S. sanctions against states sponsoring terrorism and then handed them over to the Treasury.
"Although we don't know if those deals are legal or not, the intensive contacts raise questions and OFAC [the Treasury Department office of foreign assets control] is looking into this closely," Katz said. Halliburton acknowledged in a filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission in February that OFAC recently had requested new information about the activities in Iran of one of its unit, Halliburton Services and Products, which is incorporated in the Cayman Islands and based in Dubai.

I have told you people a million times that Hallbitron and the CIA are closely linked.
