The Pentagon has rebuked its largest contractor in Iraq after a series of inspections uncovered shoddy electrical work and other problems on American military bases there, according to several Defense Department officials.

While the world tightens its collective belts, KBR continues its policy of doing half a job and expecting to be paid for it.

This is just the latest in a long line of scandals involving KBR, formerly a Halliburton subsidiary, and a company that the VP Cheney still holds stock in.

The original no-bid contracts smacked of corruption, and in a bid to increase good PR KBR was made into an independant company, although some reports say that Halliburtin still hold a majority of the stock - and why wouldn't they? The pentagon is nothing but a cash cow for them, funded by the taxpayer at a time when they are bailing out more of shrubs cronies.

Rolling Stone did a really good expose on the endemic corruption in Iraq:
