Dick Cheney was CEO of Halliburton Oil Well Cementing Company (HOWCO), and then became vice-president of George W. Bush, one of wealthy Bush dynasty who invests in oil field. Moreover, Cheney's wife, Lynnne Cheney served as board member on Lockheed Martin Corp., a giant weapon's manufacturing company.

After Bill Clinton's election cost Cheney his government job, he wound up in 1995 as CEO of Halliburton Company, the Dallas-based oil services giant -- which just happens to own Brown & Root Services. Since then, Cheney has collected more than $10 million in salary and stock payments from the company. In addition, he is currently the company's largest individual shareholder, holding stock and options worth another $40 million. Those holdings have undoubtedly been made more valuable by the ever-more lucrative contracts BRS continues to score with the Pentagon.
