SO HALLIBURTON is moving from Houston to Dubai, where they get their real money. This shouldn't surprise us, since their allegiance is to the almighty petro-dollar and not to us, the American people. In the 1990s, when Vice President Cheney was CEO of Halliburton, the firm had the job of repairing Iraq's oil fields while Saddam Hussein was still in power. And these are the people running our government. Who are they really working for? John Oliver Mason Philadelphia

Numar Corp., the Malvern manufacturer of high-tech oil exploration equipment, has agreed to be acquired by Halliburton Co., of Dallas, for $360 million. Halliburton, one of the world's largest energy-service companies, said it acquired Numar to gain control of its technology, known as MRIL, which is used in test wells to determine how much oil might be there. The equipment is similar to magnetic resonance imagining technology used in medicine. Guy T. Marcus, Halliburton's vice president for investor relations, said Numar would remain in Malvern.

The oil services company Halliburton agreed Thursday to plead guilty to destroying evidence during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster in 2010, admitting one count of criminal conduct and agreeing to pay the $200,000 maximum statutory fine, according to the Justice Department. In a startling turn in the three-year-old criminal investigation, Halliburton said that on two occasions during the oil spill, it directed employees to destroy or "get rid of" simulations that would have helped clarify how to assign blame for the blowout - and possibly focused more attention on Halliburton's role.

Avoiding the controversy swirling around his own business dealings, Vice President Cheney said yesterday that the government intended to do everything possible to pursue corporate wrongdoers. "We will not allow the deeds of a few to tarnish our free enterprise," Cheney said during a GOP fund-raising event at the West Conshohocken Marriott for State Sen. James Gerlach (R., Chester), who is running for the Sixth Congressional District seat against Democrat Dan Wofford. Cheney said that accurate statements by corporations about their profits were critical to restoring confidence in the economy.

HOUSTON - A Texas woman tearfully told jurors yesterday that she was "scared to death" and held against her will by her employer after being drugged and sexually assaulted in Iraq at the hands of co-workers for military contractor KBR Inc. Jamie Leigh Jones, 26, is one of several women who worked for KBR and former parent Halliburton Co. who say they were sexually assaulted or harassed while working for the companies in Iraq. Jones says she was raped in 2005 while working for KBR at Camp Hope, Baghdad.

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney have promised to restore honor and integrity to the White House. Yet Cheney is receiving a "golden parachute" worth millions of dollars from Halliburton Co., the nation's largest oil service company. Halliburton's payment of the huge sum to Cheney raises the question of whether this is legitimate executive compensation or an attempt by the nation's oil industry to purchase access and influence in the White House. Cheney is voluntarily leaving the company, where he worked only five years, to run for national office.

Fossett in home stretch in around-the-world quest Steve Fossett is oh-so-close to finally flying his balloon around the world all by himself. After years of crash landings, the Chicago tycoon was expected to reach western Australia within the day and claim the record of being the first solo balloonist to circumnavigate the globe. Fossett, 58, will finish when he crosses 117 degrees longitude, expected sometime late this morning EDT, but won't land until several hours later in southwest Australia.

WWII's end is commemorated PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii - About 20 World War II veterans gathered aboard the battleship Missouri in Pearl Harbor on Friday to mark the 66th year since the end of World War II. The USS Missouri was anchored in Tokyo Bay on Sept. 2, 1945, when it hosted Japanese leaders who signed surrender documents formally ending the war. The decommissioned vessel is now a museum called the Battleship Missouri Memorial. On Friday, about 300 people - including the veterans and active-duty sailors, Marines, airmen, and soldiers - observed the anniversary with a ceremony on the vessel's teak deck.

For Dick Cheney, the Republican vice presidential candidate, a visit to friendly front lines in a battleground state must have been a welcome relief. His appearance before about 150 senior citizens in Kingston, a GOP stronghold outside Wilkes-Barre, meant time away from questions that have dogged his campaign recently - about his $20 million retirement package from Halliburton Co., about how he has not voted in many recent elections, about toilets. "Yeah, the great toilet issue," Cheney said with a touch of sarcasm in a later interview with several reporters.

If Dick Cheney is elected vice president, he will bring into the White House a perspective not often found there - one gained from steering a global energy company through the stormy seas of oil-price fluctuations. Cheney became chairman and chief executive officer of Halliburton Co. in 1995, after nearly three decades in government. Yesterday, George W. Bush tapped the former secretary of defense and White House chief of staff to be his running mate on the Republican ticket. Halliburton, of Dallas, is the world's largest provider of services for crude-oil and natural-gas production.

Wealthy don't need tax-cut extension Amid the greatest inequities of income and wealth in the nation's history, President Obama and Congress enacted a 40 percent cut in estate and gift taxes, the principal means of keeping this country a middle-class inspiration to the rest of the world since Teddy Roosevelt busted the huge corporate trusts in the years preceding World War I. Adding to the disgrace is Obama's agreement to enshrine a break for...

WASHINGTON - A BP internal investigation released Wednesday concludes that eight key factors contributed to the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, including a poor cement job by Halliburton and the failure by Transocean workers to notice for 40 minutes that oil and gas were gushing into the well. BP's probe acknowledges that a key BP official aboard the rig misinterpreted a critical pressure test and then mistakenly authorized the removal of heavy drilling mud - the only impediment to gas and crude oil surging up the well's drill pipe - before the well's integrity was confirmed.

In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan pounded home one of the most potent slogans of all time: "Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. " Reagan's axiom sliced through the sloppy thinking and overreaching that had come to plague liberalism. It launched a new political era. Now, 25 years later, we sit at the exhausted edge of that era. The "blame government" riff is running out of gas, conceptually and ethically. Now, a corrective statement needs to be pounded home: If you think government is the problem, you'll have problems governing.

HOW DO Republicans rip Bill Clinton for lying to save his marriage but embrace President Bush for lying so he can go help Dick Cheney's friends like Halliburton line their pockets and get "no-bid" contracts? I guess that's part of his moral agenda. This independent voter never had a problem with Bush winning/stealing the election. My problem is with the mess he is creating that he'll leave behind once he vacates his office. We Americans should not have to pay for his incompetence.

Many people have come to believe that they have no role in politics. Although we see ourselves as a democracy, we only get to choose among people that other people propose. It seems like too much work to get involved, let alone attract enough money to run for political office. Most of us have no direct contact with political organizations. The days are gone when a precinct worker came around even to ask what the organization could do for us. What is worse, civil servants have no conception that most of the people who pay taxes to support them have not had raises that kept up with inflation for the last five years, let alone that they have endured the benefit cuts that civil servants would strike to protect in their own contracts.

Iraq needed fuel. Halliburton Co. was ordered to get it there - quick. So the Houston-based contractor charged the Pentagon $27.5 million to ship $82,100 worth of cooking and heating fuel. In the latest revelation about the company's oft-criticized performance in Iraq, a Pentagon audit report disclosed yesterday showed that Halliburton subsidiary KBR spent $82,100 to buy liquefied petroleum gas, better-known as LPG, in Kuwait and then 335 times that number to transport the fuel into violence-ridden Iraq.
