Markets have profits, not public interest at heart
May 31, 2016 1:00 AM - The opinion letter from Charles Falk titled "TSA mess shows failure of big government" conveniently leaves out examples that would demolish the simplistic "government bad -- private sector good" narrative. Did Mr. Falk forget about the mighty Halliburton (Dick Cheney's former company) and its subsidiary KBR that were contracted to feed our troops and build infrastructure for our soldiers in Iraq? After gouging the military (and subsequently the American taxpayer), they knowingly served spoiled food to our troops and electrocuted soldiers in poorly built showers. Good job private sector!
