The Halliburton Agenda. The Politics of Oil and Money

The author of the bestseller The Iron Triangle untangles a web of political back scratching in one of the world's most powerful companies Halliburton-a Texas oil-field company Dick Cheney ran before he became Vice President-has courted controversy for the better part of the twentieth century, but only recently has it received intense media scrutiny. In The Halliburton Agenda, Halliburton and its subsidiaries form the foundation of a fascinating story of influence peddling and behind-the-scenes political maneuvering that has only increased in momentum over the last decade-culminating in a firestorm of problems arising as soon as Cheney took office. This intriguing book shows readers where Halliburton has been doing business and with whom-topping the list so far are Iran, Iraq, and Libya. It also reveals how this juggernaut of a corporation has engaged in a cycle of profits that begins by selling products and services to potential terrorist states, contracting with the federal government during times of war against those states, then gaining valuable rebuilding contracts to help repair those states. It will also show how a Halliburton subsidiary, Kellogg Brown&Root, has become an indispensable part of the U.S. military, so much so that the two are indistinguishable at times. Halliburton is one of the first American companies to recognize the importance of aligning itself with powerful politicians, heavily contributing to campaigns, then cashing in on lucrative government contracts. Engaging and informative, The Halliburton Agenda carefully explores the arc of the company's success, its use of political affiliation, and the scope of its international business.

Career

Prior to writing about corporations and their political ties, Briody was a technology journalist, including working as an editor[2] and columnist[3] for InfoWorld. He later began writing for the magazine Red Herring, for whom he initially wrote about the Carlyle Group in 2001.[4]

Briody expanded his Red Herring Carlyle Group article, turning it into his first book in 2003. The Iron Triangle landed on several best-seller lists,[5] with The New York Times describing it as "one-stop shopping for anyone who wants a laundry list of accusations against Carlyle since its inception in 1987."[4]

The Iron Triangle put Briody in the media spotlight, commenting to audiences curious about the confluence of the military business and politics. Briody appeared in Michael Moore's movie Fahrenheit 9/11, talking about how the Carlyle Group benefited from 9/11 and the Bush family's connections with the Carlyle Group and Saudi Arabia.[1] Briody has since appeared on a number of national broadcasts including The Today Show, Nightline, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, and NPR's Fresh Air.

In 2004, Briody published The Halliburton Agenda, a detailed account of Halliburton, the oil services and logistics company formerly run by Dick Cheney. In particular, he covered its subsidiary KBR (formerly named Kellogg Brown & Root).

More recently, Briody writes freelance articles for a variety of magazines, including Martha Stewart Living, Golf Digest, BusinessWeek, MSN, and Inc. He is also the founder of a communications consultancy for Fortune 500 companies.
