Pentagon Audit Questions Halliburton's Costs in Iraq

Author: Griff Witte
QUOTE: Pentagon auditors found more than $100 million in questionable costs in one section of a massive, no-bid Halliburton Co. contract for delivering fuel to Iraq...

ABSTRACT: A report released by Democrats claimed that Halliburton, a company formerly run by Vice President Dick Cheney, charged over $100M in unsubstantiated costs in a government contract to deliver fuel to Iraq during the invasion of the country in 2003. Pentagon auditors made a recommendation to withhold payment to the firm but the Army is continuing to pay the company. White House officials stated that any misspent funds would be reclaimed.
