Nevada congressman calls for House hearings into Halliburton
Rep. Jim Gibbons, R-Nev., called Saturday for congressional hearings of Vice President Dick Cheney's former company, calling allegations that it overcharged for fuel in Iraq "an absolute outrage."

Gibbons said he wants the House Armed Services Committee to hold hearings early next year on allegations that Halliburton Co. charged up to $61 million too much for delivering gasoline to Iraqi citizens under a no-bid contract. The company denies overcharging.
As you may have read, Halliburton maintains a Kuwaiti subcontractor is responsible for the overcharges. This is interesting in light of an earlier article on activities seen by a meterologist in satellite images.
