"Tribal sovereignty means that; it’s sovereign. I mean, you’re a you’ve been given sovereignty, and you’re viewed as a sovereign entity. And therefore the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities."

--George W. Bush, August 7, 2004

Halliburton Questioned on $1.8 Billion Iraq Work

"Pentagon auditors have concluded that Halliburton Co. failed to adequately account for more than $1.8 billion of work in Iraq and Kuwait, the Wall Street Journal said on Wednesday, citing a Pentagon report.

"The amount represents 43 percent of the $4.18 billion that Houston-based Halliburton's Kellogg Brown & Root unit has billed the Pentagon to feed and house troops in the region, the newspaper said.

"It said the findings in the 60-page Pentagon audit report, dated Aug. 4 but not publicly released are likely to increase pressure on the U.S. government to withhold hundreds of millions of dollars of payments to Halliburton.

"This, it said, potentially threatens the services that KBR provides U.S. troops and other personnel in Iraq and Kuwait."

It's a good thing the Bishop's billing system is in order.
