Cheney Preparing to Skoot to Dubai

I heard, many months ago and probably on the Alex Jones show, that Dick Cheney was quietly getting rid of all US dollar assets and investments that would tank along with the dollar and that he was buying a house in Dubai. Can anyone reference any sources more presentable than Alex Jones to substantiate this claim?

Don't take me to be bashing Alex Jones. I think anyone outside of his inner circle of most devoted fans will understand why I would not want to cite his show as a primary reference for something as important as the claim that this financial crash was engineered and should not be viewed as any sort of accident or unforeseen fallout of well-intentioned business practices and wise oversight.

I don't think it much matters where he decides to buy a house. The UAE is dripping in money Halliburton has indeed moved there.
Regardless of what Alex Jones says, Dubai IS becomming the luxury playground for a select few. That's about the only thing that gives me hope that the US would not nuke Iran.

This is a brief description of world island. It's paradise, just don't get caught drinking or holding hands on the beach... that is unless you are very very rich. In other words, one of them.
At around 2:42 of this video it touches on "security"... I think I read somewhere Cheney was heading that up for them but I haven't tracked that down.

Halliburton is a leader on this. Dick Cheney, Halliburton's former CEO, the guy who helped crash the dollar by starting an unwinnable boondoggle in Iraq has already moved Halliburton's HQ to Dubai (unofficially by him, but we know what's what).

Halliburton Co. surprised the energy world, members of Congress and the city of Houston today by announcing it will open a new corporate headquarters in the United Arab Emirates and relocate its chief executive officer there.

The UAE has experienced a dramatic economic boom in recent years and American companies are vying to muscle into a country awash with petrodollars where they can operate free of corporate taxes.
The event was attended by executives from some of America's largest corporations including Boeing and ExxonMobil -- who are both sponsoring the coalition -- as well as American diplomats and trade officials, Bahrain's ambassador to Washington and World Bank officials.

(Satirical,but true.)
Cheney, who seeks to avoid extradition as a war criminal after his term of office terminates, will take up residence in the tiny but very wealthy nation just as soon as he can secure a blanket Presidential pardon from his CEO, George W. Bush, in the closing days of his term. The Dubai government has agreed to make Cheney an honorary head of state, giving him the title of Shaw for life.

Thank you
Yes, I've seen several videos about the luxury islands under construction in the UAE. Thank you for all the links. I'll try to avoid coming across as a "conspiracy theorist" should I make reference to the content of any of them.

This financial situation looks so obviously designed. What fascinates me is how people cannot just SEE it for what it is.This seems to be the final pillage just before this band of crooks leave office. The people will "elect" a new president and feel like something has changed.

Some other links
The NYTimes article about the Halliburton Dubai move
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/12/business/12haliburton.html?ex=1331438400&en=4f12642ec49b486a&ei=5124&partner=permalink&exprod=permalink

This Times article from 2006 states: (Note the largest holdings for Cheney are in an International Bond Fund (ie not dollars)

"...Vice President Dick Cheney and Lynn Cheney reported a portfolio in a bracket that ran up to $94.6 million. Their biggest assets were holdings in the American Century Investments International Bond Fund and the Vanguard Short-Term Tax-Exempt Fund Admiral Shares, at $5 million to $25 million..."
http://www.nytimes.com/2006/05/16/washington/16disclose.html

This article shows a European loophole that allows the owners of assets to remain anonymous while hiding them.

"...There is no transparency to a Hidden Treuhand, and, therefore, no means to identify the real benefactors. But the most important factor concerning a Treuhand contract is this: If a Treuhand contract is embedded in the corporate structure, then its sole purpose is to prevent the public from knowing the identity of the real stockholders. Who is calling the shots and who is benefiting is kept secret.

The "True Hands," the true benefactors' identity, is hidden from public knowledge; they remain anonymous and nameless in transactions, and that is the sole incentive for creating a Hidden Treuhand..."
http://whistleblowersupporter.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/08/how-halliburton-and-others-hide-assets-true-identity-of-stockholders.html

I think this last article is the key. It provides a complete mechanism for Cheney to hide his assets, profit from them, while not being connected to them in any way. Most of all it's legal.
