Today on Holden's Obsession with the Gaggle

Little Scottie, seen here collecting his standard $1 per lie fee, is confused:
Q Do you think it's appropriate for Halliburton to set up an off shore subsidiary and then have operations in Iran? Do you think that's an appropriate thing for a company to do?

MR. McCLELLAN: Are you asking because the Kerry campaign is making some accusations?

No, Scottie, it's not the Kerry campaign that says Halliburton set up an off-shore subsidiary that conducted business in Iran.  Halliburton is saying that:
A U.S. grand jury issued a subpoena to Halliburton Co. seeking information about its Cayman Islands unit's work in Iran, where it is illegal for U.S. companies to operate, Halliburton said on Monday.
