    US senator's war profiteering

    This interesting piece, from Brick Burner:

    The Democrats aren’t just letting the Republicans get away with murder, however, some of them are also reaping the benefits of the Bush wars. We constantly hear about Dick Cheney’s ties to Halliburton and how his ex-company is making bundles off US contracts in Iraq. But what we don’t hear about is how Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein and her husband are also making tons of money off the “war on terror”.

    The wishy-washy senator now claims Bush misled her leading up to the invasion of Iraq. I don’t think she’s being honest with us though, there may have been other reasons she helped sell Bush’s lies. According to The Center for Public Integrity, Senator Feinstein’s husband Richard Blum has racked in millions of dollars from Perini, a civil infrastructure construction company, of which the billionaire investor wheels 75 percent of the voting share.

    This is a very good article, and makes a worthwhile read, please do go and read all of it, it has some very valid points. These issues aren't a matter of petty partisan politics, whoever benefits from war profiteering, or is responsible for illegal actions in the so called "war on terror" and invasions of Afghanistan, and Iraq must be held responsible.
