Halliburton Watch reports

A new congressional report on the failed emergency response to Hurricane Katrina concludes that the victims could have benefited from Halliburton’s most-scandalous contract in Iraq.

The report quotes Bill Carwile of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), who concludes that future disaster response programs should involve “much more robust private sector partnerships,” including Halliburton’s LOGCAP contract with the Army Corps of Engineers.

LOGCAP is Halliburton’s most lucrative Iraq contract and continues to be the primary focus of the military’s criticisms related to cost-overcharges. In the first 18 months of the war, the Pentagon’s Defense Contract Audit Agency found $1.4 billion in cost overcharges on Halliburton’s work in Iraq, most of it performed under LOGCAP.
