War Profiteering

"KRB, the largest private contractor for the Pentagon in Iraq, has two shell companies in the Caymans.... Because the companies are offshore, neither KBR nor the workers must pay Social Security and Medicare taxes ... according to (the Boston Globe)." "When KBR set up the second of its two shells in the Caymans, it was still owned by Halliburton. Halliburtons's chief executive then was Mr Cheney."

Why do we put up with this? Is it because any criticism of the administration's Iraqi policy is subject to the charge of being unpatriotic?
