Cheney, Halliburton, and the Lord

Perhaps this is one of the facts Dick Cheney wanted you to discover on "FactCheck.com" (see "Cheney puts foot in mouth..."):

"At an energy industry conference in 1996, Cheney said sanctions were the greatest threat to Halliburton and other American oil-related companies trying to expand overseas.

"'We seem to be sanction-happy as a government,' Cheney said. 'The problem is that the good Lord didn't see fit to always put oil and gas resources where there are democratic governments.'''

The Lord also apparently doesn't see fit to put rational or honest politicians where there are democratic governments.
