GOTCHA! Time Magazine fingers Cheney in Halliburton Iraq contract

Not that there was any doubt in many people's minds, but finally there is an explicit connection made by a major media outlet between Cheney and Halliburton's Iraq contracts. Has anyone really believed otherwise? With these guys operating a nepotistic orgy within out government, was there any doubt such favoritism would extend to corporate backers?
How much more of this corporate run government do we have to take? Here are two great quotes on the subject:
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed

-Abraham Lincoln
"Public confidence in the integrity of the Government is indispensable to faith in democracy; and when we lose faith in the system, we have lost faith in everything we fight and spend for."

-Adlai Stevenson
