Ten Stories The Media Are Ignoring

Some surprising stories in here including this one:

Halliburton charged with selling nuclear technology to Iran

Halliburton, the notorious U.S. energy company, sold key
nuclear-reactor components to a private Iranian oil company called
Oriental Oil Kish as recently as 2005, using offshore subsidiaries to
circumvent U.S. sanctions. The story is particularly juicy because Vice
President Dick Cheney, who now claims to want to stop Iran from getting
nukes, was president of Halliburton in the mid-1990s, at which time he
may have advocated business dealings with Iran, in violation of U.S.

Business with Key Member of Iran’s Nuclear Team," Jason Leopold,, Aug. 5, 2005.
