Sure to Boost Troop Morale

Because Halliburton, the company formerly headed by VP Dick Cheney and currently accused of overcharging the U.S. government for fuel and meal service, hasn’t paid its subcontractors in a timely manner, U.S troops in Iraq may see an end to hot meals.

Event Source, which serves 100,000 meals a day in Iraq, is owed $87 million from Halliburton. Because they are running low on cash, Event Source has already laid off staff in the U.S. and will soon have to serve only sandwiches to troops.
