Your Tax Dollars At Work

From The Nation, May 20:
The Department of Defense paid former Halliburton subsidiary KBR more than $80 million in bonuses for contracts to install electrical wiring in Iraq. The award payments were for the very work that resulted in the electrocution deaths of US soldiers, according to Department of Defense documents revealed today in a Senate hearing. [emphasis added]
Halliburton, of course, was Dick Cheney's old employer.
