Non-Linear Narrative

Is this a bad movie script, or what? I mean, when I write fiction or even science fiction, I can’t tell stories this absurd or they seem too much like conspiracy theory. Even in the comic book I’m writing, I find it too preposterous to make one corporation run by a government official responsible for everything bad. There just has to be a more complicated web of bad guys to make it believable. Even Batman has multiple villians with different capabilities. But check out today’s headlines on Halliburton:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Halliburton Co. unit will build a new $30 million detention facility and security fence at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where the United States is holding about 520 foreign terrorism suspects, the Defense Department announced on Thursday.

Halliburton, the oil company that won the no-bid contract in Iraq, is now being charged with building the security fence at Gitmo? Someone call the plot police.
