Makes you wonder if the official Haliburton strategy isn't just "Overcharge for everything, we'll only get caught on about half of it!"

That's the problem, what the **** is the Defense Department doing handling food services?

Ok then. How about:

Get some accountants who's resume excludes "slowest time on the obstacle course out of his platoon".

Last week, Halliburton said it would repay the government $6.2 million to cover possible overcharges by another subcontractor under the same contract
Quote:
Pentagon auditors also are reviewing whether KBR may have overcharged the government at least $61 million to import fuel from Kuwait into Iraq


Gee, it's too bad the only company who could have possibly handled this stuff during that time sensitive closed bid is either full of thieves or else has manned the accounting department with a pack of gibbons.

This really wouldn't surprise me. There have been instances when insurance companies repeatedly denied claims in the hope that the claimaint would simply give up and pay it himself, which they often do. I don't see why a huge, hugely complex and convoluted corporation like Halliburton wouldn't try something so insidiously simple. ****, careers get made when people dare to make that sort of suggestion.

The secret to it is to overcharge enough to cover the cost of the times when you get caught and fined. It's like being a financial advisor-- you make money comin' and goin'.

Sweet gig if you can get it...

Do you think the feds would notice if I added $27.4 million to my income tax refund. Nah.....
