Nigeria to Charge Dick Cheney in Pipeline Bribery Case
Source: Bloomberg

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Nigeria will file charges against former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and officials from five foreign companies including Halliburton Co. over a $180 million bribery scandal, a prosecutor at the anti-graft agency said.

Indictments will be lodged in a Nigerian court “in the next three days,” Godwin Obla, prosecuting counsel at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, said in an interview today at his office in Abuja, the capital. An arrest warrant for Cheney “will be issued and transmitted through Interpol,” the world’s biggest international police organization, he said.

Peter Long, Cheney’s spokesman, said he couldn’t immediately comment when contacted today and said he would respond later to an e-mailed request for comment.

Obla said charges will be filed against current and former chief executive officers of Halliburton, including Cheney, who was CEO from 1995 to 2000, and its former unit KBR Inc., based in Houston, Texas; Technip SA, Europe’s second-largest oilfield- services provider; Eni SpA, Italy’s biggest oil company; and Saipem Construction Co., a unit of Eni. Obla didn’t identify the former officials whom he said held office when the alleged bribes were paid.

Let the orgasms begin!

26. Thank you to the Nigerian Elliot Ness

We can't get Cheney's murdering bastard ass on war crimes, so we charge him with bribery. Too bad this ghoul will be dead in 5 months.
Yes, of course. We can't charge him with any crimes here because ... well, there aren't actually any laws that have been broken. But at least Nigeria can charge him with something from fifteen years ago! Which, I'm sure, will put quite a crimp in Cheney's travel plans, since we all know how much he enjoys spending time in the garden spot that is Nigeria. I'm sure he keeps a vacation home in Abuja, just like the ones he has in wonderful and scenic Flint and the world's prettiest place, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

41. A whole lot less than he deserves, but it feels great reading the words....
an arrest warrant for Cheney.
Ah. How typical. It "feels good," which is good enough for liberals.

51. I'm not holding my breath waiting for anything to come of this...
...but DAMN. It feels so good to read that headline. With the crappy month we've been having since election day, it feels good seeing someone having enough of a steel set to charge that son of a bitch with a crime.
Yeah! Because no one has actually ever demonstrated that he's committed any sort of crime before....

58. Another place he can't go. I love it. :)
I'm sure he's just crushed at the prospect that he will never be able to visit Nigeria. Devastating news.

Hate to tell Mosaic, but Cheney ain't in charge of anything any more.

We had a little thing called an election in 2008.

Maybe people at the nervous hospital forgot to tell you; after all it was in all the papers.

I swear these people have to life at all :rolleyes:

If you accept the premise that Bush and Cheney are war criminals because of Iraq and Afghanistan, then would it not follow that Barack Insane Obama and Joe BiteMe are also guilty of the same offenses?
They are doing nothing less than their predecessors were.
