Feeding the Troops - Or Not

KBR, subsidiary of our friends at Halliburton, are at it again. From today's Wall Street Journal (subscription):

Pentagon auditors told a House committee that contractor Kellogg Brown & Root billed the government for as many as 36% more meals than it has provided to troops in Iraq and Kuwait, adding to the dispute over how the Halliburton Co. unit previously billed for dining-hall services.
Our tax dollars, that are supposed to be used to serve hot meals to our soldiers, are going to line the pockets of Halliburton exectutives - including Dick "The Dick" Cheney, who continues to amass deferred compensation from his former company. These guys continue to plumb the depths of corporate greed and avarice. And BushCo. continues to feed them our tax dollars.
