"Halliburton Derangement Syndrome struck the media again this week. ABC News ran
big with a story about a “Houston, Texas woman who says she was gang-raped by
Halliburton/KBR coworkers in Baghdad, and the company and the U.S. government
are covering up the incident.” The allegations are awful. She may be telling the
truth. But beware of the sensationalism and hype."
Truth be told, there is a Halliburton Derangement Syndrome developing, but just like the Bush and Clinton versions it has a wide set of effects. It sends some people into mad fits of accusations that they know nothing about, and it sends others into mad fits of defending against accusations they know nothing about.
