Bush's detention facilities

Houston-based KBR, formerly the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton Co., has a contingency contract in place with the Department of Homeland Security to construct detention facilities in the event of a national emergency.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, spokeswoman Jamie Zuieback confirmed yesterday in a telephone interview that the KBR contract for $385 million was awarded initially in January 2006 for a one-year base period with four one-year options. It has been extended into 2007. KBR held a previous emergency detention contract with ICE from 2000 to 2005.

This is not from some nutty leftwing conspiracy site. It's from a nutty rightwing conspiracy site WorldNetDaily, written by Swiftboater Jerome Corsi.

This story broke in 2006 with a couple of articles from Peter Dale Scott on the New American Media/Pacific News Service site. If I'm not mistaken Scott won a "Project Censored" award for his reporting. Seems that the right-wingers, as usual, are a day late and a dollar short! ;)
