Halliburton's Higher Bill
The Army has ordered nearly $5 billion in work from Halliburton Co. to provide logistics support to U.S. troops in Iraq over the next year, $1 billion above what the Army paid for similar services the previous year.

The new order, which comes despite lingering questions about the company's past billing, replaces an earlier agreement that expired last June but had been extended through this spring to ensure a continuous supply of food, sanitation, laundry and other logistical services for the troops, according to Linda K. Theis, an Army spokeswoman.

3. Oil & corporate contracts
This is what our men & women---and Iraqis---are dying for.

Sickening. War Profiteering has never before been so profitable, deadly, nor despicable.
