Yahoo! News - Halliburton Tells Pentagon Workers Took Kickbacks to Award Projects in Iraq

WASHINGTON -- Halliburton Co. (NYSE:HAL - News) has told the Pentagon (news - web sites) that two employees took kickbacks valued at up to $6 million in return for awarding a Kuwaiti-based company with lucrative work supplying U.S. troops in Iraq (news - web sites), Friday's Wall Street Journal reported.Yahoo links rot fast, so check it out. Meanwhile I'll see if I can find it from another generally accessible source. Or you can just grab a WSJ.

Or read the lefty blogs - I'm sure it'll be at the top of the agenda there, except possibly for the Cheney/Scalia thing.
