Well, this is galling but not entirely what we would call surprising.

So, yes, the Cheney Cabal -- via Homeland Security grants -- is now apparently directly funding corporate security for petrochem firms.

As others have been speculating, this allllllllllllllllllllllllllllll tracks back to Kreepy Unka Dick's Energy Task Force.

Which ties in with our previous thoughts on Extelligence: in addition to privatizing national security intel, Cheney is also privatizing certain segments of the national security apparatus on the ground. Exfrastructure.

More prognostication: in the event of a Bush-Cheney win this fall, about halfway through their second term we will see a genuinely ugly private military/commando debacle, along the lines of Iran-Contra.
