Cheney Meets with KBR Contractors?

On his family Iraqi vacation Vice President Dick Cheney ate breakfast with "some of the 20,000 U.S. troops on the base, which supplies food, fuel, bullets and other items — from toilet paper to military hardware — to all operations in Iraq."

A September 2007 Los Angeles Times article had this to say about KBR's role in Iraq. "KBR was under intense pressure from the military to deliver on its multibillion-dollar contract to transport food, fuel and other vital supplies to U.S. soldiers."

Does that mean the ex-Halliburton CEO met with employees of an ex-Halliburton subsidiary? Did they talk about the value of their stock options? My guess is Cheney's aren't underwater...
