MoveOn.org produces advertisement critical of Halliburton
10 June 2004
WASHINGTON, June 10 (HalliburtonWatch.org) - Political advocacy group MoveOn.org produced a new television advertisement critical of Halliburton. The ad states, "George Bush gave Dick Cheney's old company, Halliburton, no-bid contracts for Iraq on a silver platter .... They overcharged millions for gasoline. Worse, they charged hundreds of millions of dollars for meals for our troops that they never delivered." The ad concludes by saying, "We're not being led, we're being misled." MoveOn.org is attempting to raise $1.1 million to air the ad for a week in the so-called "battleground states," or states where President Bush and Senator John Kerry (D-MA) are tied in the opinion polls.
