US told to repay Iraq for 'shoddy' work

The United States has reportedly been told it should pay Iraq as much as $280 million for overbilling or shoddy work by a subsidiary of the American oil firm Halliburton.



The New York Times reports that a United Nations auditing board has said work carried out by Kellogg, Brown and Root and paid for with Iraqi oil revenues was delivered at inflated prices or done poorly.

But the paper says it is too early to say how much of the funds should be paid back.

It says analysis of financial statements and documents are still under way.

Halliburton was once managed by the US Vice President, Dick Cheney.

no Haliburton is an oil firm?

And I think Iraq has got some guts if they think we will pay them for shit. Unless they plan on giving us some money/oil back themselves.

I do love this biased reporting.

Let me try my hand at it:

God hating Democrat activist Nancy Pelosi has yet to acknowledge her original support for the President’s aggressive foreign policy in Iraq. While she is now parading around against it, insinuating United States soldiers are murders, she has not yet rescinded the very vocal and public support she once gave.

See, I can paint a picture too, facts schmacts… “Haliburton the oil company”…. Nice tie in, regardless of it’s factuality.
