 Halliburton Company

"Overall, Halliburton's commercial position at the intersection of oil services, petro-diplomacy, and military

support, backstopped by the omnipresence of its former

CEO within the executive branch

, had arguably built it

into a private- sector amalgam of oil industry, corps of engineers, and intelligence agency. As such, the firm

has taken up some of the delegated role and governmental influence Anthony sampson attributed to oil companies

in the simpler years o the 1930's, 1940s, and 1950s. Halliburton's and Cheney's 2000 role in convincing the

State Department to set aside CIA arguments and decide in favor of a project with Tyumen, a Russian oil company

controversial for its KGB and mob links, was a case in point."
