Halliburton's High-Power Ties to U.S. Government NPR's Alex Chadwick speaks with NPR's John Burnett about Vice President Dick Cheney's connections with oil services conglomerate Halliburton. The giant Texas-based corporation landed many lucrative Iraq reconstruction contracts, which many consider a problem because Cheney is Halliburton's former CEO.
