Halliburton to build new $30 mln Guantanamo jail


=20

Here's a reason WHY there is NO housing being built---and states are =
kicking the poor and elderly to the curb---meantime numerous bases =
costing BILLIONS are being built across the world while bases here are =
being closed. To date its "reported" that thus far some 300 billion has =
been spent on this dusty land-(from the accountants it's more like 600 =
billion-on C-Span yesterday) when you identify other agencies =
involved-separate contracts et al. JM=20

Halliburton to build new $30 million Guantanamo jail

Thu Jun 16, 2005 07:21 PM ET=20

=20

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Halliburton Co. unit will build a new $30 =
million detention facility and security fence at the U.S. naval base at =
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where the United States is holding about 520 =
foreign terrorism suspects, the Defense Department announced on =
Thursday.=20

The announcement comes the same week that Vice President Dick Cheney and =
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld defended the jail after U.S. lawmakers =
said it had created an image problem for the United States.=20

Critics have decried the indefinite detention of Guantanamo detainees, =
whom the United States has denied rights accorded under the Geneva =
Conventions to prisoners of war. The prison was called "the gulag of our =
times" in a recent Amnesty International report.=20

An air-conditioned two-story prison, known as Detention Camp #6, will be =
built at Guantanamo to house 220 men. It will include exercise areas, =
medical and dental spaces as well as a security control room, the =
contract announcement said.=20

The contract announcement did not specify whether the new prison would =
also hold foreign terror suspects.=20

Under the deal with the Norfolk, Virginia-based U.S. Naval Facilities =
Engineering Command, Atlantic, the work is to be wrapped up by July =
2006. It is part of a larger contract that could be worth up to $500 =
million if all options are exercised, the Defense Department said.=20

The project is to be carried out by Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg Brown =
& Root Services of Arlington, Virginia. It includes site work, heating =
ventilation and air conditioning, plumbing and electrical work, the =
Pentagon said.=20

The first prisoners arrived at the prison camp in January 2002 after the =
Sept. 11, 2001, hijacked airliner attacks on New York and the Pentagon.=20

The Pentagon has said about 520 detainees from more than 40 countries =
are being held at the prison, without giving a precise figure.=20

Rumsfeld said on Tuesday U.S. taxpayers had spend more than $100 million =
on construction costs and no other facility could replace it.=20
