Is anyone surprised? 

Yahoo! News - Pentagon Finds Halliburton Overcharged
A Pentagon investigation has found overcharging and other violations in a $15.6 billion Iraq reconstruction contract awarded to Vice President Dick Cheney's former company, a defense official said Thursday.

An ongoing audit of Halliburton's Kellogg, Brown & Root subsidiary found substantial overcharging for fuel and other items, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The problems go beyond overcharging, the official said, declining to elaborate.
Cheney, a former defense secretary, stepped down from Halliburton when he became Bush's running mate in 2000 and has said he played no role in contracts for his former company.
Played no role? BULLSHIT.

I can't believe anyone will be surprised by these allegation. Haliburton is simply looting the government and the people of Iraq under cover of the Oval Office.
