This is How George Bush and Dick Cheney Support the Troops

Do these assholes ever stop!?

Halliburton Hearing Unearths New Abuse
The new evidence... shows that Hallliburton... overcharged or presented questionable bills for close on $1.5 billion, almost four times the previous amount disclosed... lost 12 giant pre-fabricated bases worth over $75 million destined for the troops.

...the company charged the Army for 20,000 meals a day when it was only serving 10,000... [a whistleblower] says he was punished for speaking to auditors by being banished to the more dangerous outpost of Falluja.

...the company would sometimes supply food that was over a year past the expiration date or had spoiled due to inconsistent refrigeration. When the United States military occasionally refused the spoiled food, Halliburton truckers were instructed to take them to the next base in the hope that they would escape scrutiny.

Don't worry - Bush and Cheney are ensuring that more and more billions are being awarded to the Halliban. Thank God I am not one of the 51% of the idiots who voted for criminals to take over the government.

Those damn scheming croonies are as dispicable as their actions.

I guess I have a question. I realize this doesn't make it right, but I have to ask, if not Haliburton, then who? No other company does what it does, just like no other organization does what the Pentagon does. How can one determine things like price structure, etc. when one is offering a one-of-a-kind service?
