According to Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Pentagon (news - web sites) audit of Halliburton, the oil services firm once run by Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites), found the company may have overbilled the U.S. government by more than $120 million on Iraq (news - web sites) contracts, U.S. defense officials said on Thursday.

Why am I not surprised? This entire Iraq war fiasco will be the subject of much consternation and entertainment to future generations.

It took them this long. Doonsbury had it figured out a month ago:

Why is this new? They *may* have overbilled. If the didn't good. If they did, the auditing process worked and they'll pay the money back, and oversight will be increased. Who cares?

Instead of crabbing about everything that goes wrong, why don't you think of way of helping things out overthere, like sponsoring a school, etc.

I know one thing that would help over there. Elect someone who will do a better job then the guy who is screwing it up now.

Funny how they never accidently pay the soldiers too much. Ever notice that? Yes, they'll accidently pay Halliburton millions, but they'll skimp on paying the Iraqi security forces (the ones who are supposed to protect our troops, and let our troops come home) so badly that half of 'em quit.

Our people are dying and our mission is failing because the commander-in-chief is a lousy commander. The best way to help all envolved is to get rid of the fool as soon as constitutionally possible.
