On CNN’s The Situation Room yesterday, Wolf Blitzer talked with Jack Cafferty about the possibility of a Halliburton take over of the ports:
WOLF BLITZER: You know, Jack, there’s a lot of chatter out there on the web right now that Halliburton is going to get these six ports. Can you imagine what the uproar would be then? I don’t think that’s going to happen.
JACK CAFFERTY: I don’t think — I mean, they’re brazen, those folks in Washington, but I don’t think anybody down there’s got nerve enough to do that. I mean, I’m cynical, but even I don’t think that’s going to happen.
In response to Blitzer’s chatter talk, Cathy Mann, director of communications at Halliburton tells NRO via e-mail this morning: “we are not involved at all.”
