Yahoo! News - Pentagon to Keep Cash From Halliburton
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 This is on top of $36 million in returned fees from earlier this year, and $141 million in "voluntarily withdrawn," then resubmitted bills.
