Dick Cheney: a Bargain at $250 Million?

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

It appears to be a very Merry Christmas for former vice president Dick Cheney.

The government of Nigeria has negotiated a $250 million dollar settlement deal that would see charges dropped against Cheney in a bribery scandal.

Officials from Nigeria and energy monstrosity Halliburton, Cheney’s former company, must still approve the offer from the West African country’s government, according to Femi Babafemi, a spokesman for Nigeria’s anti-graft agency.

The Nigerian government worked out a settlement deal in the case following weekend negotiations in London. The original sum placed on Cheney was $500 million.

Nigerian authorities had charged Cheney in a bribery scandal linked to construction of a bribes paid to win a contract to build a $6 billion liquefied natural gas plant in Nigeria’s oil-rich southern delta when Cheney was head of Halliburton.

A source close to the case speaking on condition of anonymity confirmed the $250 million total amount, but said 100 million was in Switzerland, while a further $30 million dollars was held in Monaco.

    When is that piece of Shite, Cheney, going to do the World a favor and die already!?!?!

  2. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    I predict we will ultimately learn from Wiki that the Obama White House leaned on the Nigerian government to accept this deal to keep Cousin Cheney out of jail.

    These people protect each other like extended family look out for each other.

    Of course, Cheney belongs before the World Court. He’s a war criminal, just like George W. Bush and now, Barack Hussein Obama.

  3. Joe in Colorado says:

    Cheney walks on water. He has a protective cloak shrouding him at all times and he will never, ever be held accountable for a lifetime of misdeeds. I don’t know how people like this do it but they do. No wonder he was chosen by the Bush dynasty to babysit little George. Cheney did all the dirty work because a little dried blood under his fingernails doesn’t bother him in the least.

  4. Jolly Roger says:

    There was no way Bushack HW Obama was going to let any harm come to Deferment Dick.

  5. I agree with every comment. President Pootie Tang is protecting Cheney because protecting Cheney is protecting himself.

    Especially, as the Wikileaks documents, cables and emails suggest Obama is every bit as culpable in war crimes in Afghanistan as was Bush and Cheney.

    Current and former presidents and vice presidents — the most exclusive club on earth.

  6. Brigadoon says:

    America is the ultimate banana republic and the on-going protection of people like George Bush and Dick Cheney by Barack Obama just proves it. Representative democracy? Give me a damned break!

  7. TOM339 says:

    My wife can’t stand Obama.

    She said as soon as the Nigerian case came to light that Obama would never allow harm to come to his cousin, Dick. My wife is usually right.

  8. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    Five heart attacks and a bypass and Cheney won’t die.

    Talk about supernatural. Cheney has definitely cut some sort of deal with El Diablo. I am curious to know how much he paid for eternal life? A million? Ten million? It had to cost a lot.

    Gee whiz…………… I could take care of the problem for the price of one .45 caliber shell!

    You sit around here and you spin your little webs and you think the whole world revolves around you and your money. Well, it doesn’t, Mr. Chaney. In the whole vast configuration of things, I’d say you were nothing but a scurvy little spider. And…

    I truly detest Cheney. He’s a soulless SOB.
