In a previous post I commented that Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) might have revealed more than he intended when he compared Louisiana to Iraq. Well remember how Haliburton began running PR ads when its Iraq contracts were questioned? Well questions have been raised about the awarding of contracts to companies like the Shaw Group, even The Times Picayune has started to ask questions (of course the questions were buried several paragraphs deep into the story and the reporter wasn't from the Washington Bureau). And on TV today I noticed that the Shaw Group has started running PR commercials. Yes Sen. Craig, there are similarities between Louisiana and Iraq.
