Too good to be true, as I should have expected.

The Nigerian government has dropped criminal charges against Halliburton and its then overlord Darth Cheney in the case of bribes totaling about $180 million. Instead, the company has settled and will pay a fine that is "supposed" to be undisclosed, but Nigerian officials are saying will be $250 million.

In other words, they paid for a really expensive meal and got left with a mandatory 140% tip.

If I were them, I wouldn't go to that restaurant anymore.
