Friends will do almost anything for each other.
At the 2004 State of the Union Address Bush said, "...Colonel Qadhafi correctly judged that his country would be better off and far more secure without weapons of mass murder. Nine months of intense negotiations involving the United States and Great Britain succeeded with Libya..."
So, Bush supported negotiations with the terrorist who funded the Pan Am 103 bombing. And now Haliburton can work with Libya directly, rather than through foreign corporations, as they have done for more than a decade.
