Apparently the multi-billion-dollar no-bid contracts weren’t enough. Reuters reports that the U.S. Army has decided to award a Halliburton subsidiary $9.4 million in bonus payments for its work in Kuwait and Afghanistan, and plans to assess more projects for "bonuses that could amount to hundreds of millions of dollars." Even the Halliburton unit accused of overcharging troops for meals is "scheduled to be addressed later" for a bonus review, an Army spokesperson said. The news comes weeks after the Army ignored its own auditors and departed from normal policy by not withholding future payments to Halliburton "despite audit reports?that said the giant logistical contractor had not properly accounted for a wide variety of work in Iraq and Kuwait."
