Jail the CEO's. They are responsible. If they didn't know about wrong doing, they should have. They rake in millions of pay per year, by that measure, they show a large responsibility.

What? No! I would have never thought it from Halliburton. And waht does Mr. Obama have to do with this article about Halliburton? Halliburton is a right-wing consertative supporting operation.

Halliburton has been ethically challenged since the days that Dick Cheney ran it. Glad to see that they finally got caught.
