Yahoo! News - Pentagon to Keep Cash From Halliburton

AP

A report by pentagon auditors found more Halliburton overbilling for food costs in Iraq - this time, almost $160 million. This is on top of $36 million in returned fees from earlier this year, and $141 million in "voluntarily withdrawn," then resubmitted bills.

Halliburton management will be appearing before some angry investors tomorrow.

The Pentagon thinks it's systemic. I wonder why. Rep. Henry Waxman's Government Reform Committee put out a roundup briefing for colleagues. His main site on contracting provides a wealth of original documentation.
