Cheney's old company in news again

According to a recent audit of Halliburton, the company has somehow misplaced a third of the government property that the U.S.-led Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq paid it to manage. This comes on the tail of a criminal investigation into alleged fuel price gouging by the company and an FBI inquiry into possible favoritism from the Bush administration.

"The Associated Press reported Wednesday that FBI agents have extensively interviewed an Army contracting officer who last month went public with allegations that the Bush administration was improperly awarding contracts to Halliburton without competitive bidding."

On the Net, check out the latest inspector general report. Excellent information on the company's shenanigans can be found at Halliburton Watch.
