Halliburton unit could make $7b [Boston Globe] " ... [I]t took engineers nine months and about $700 million to put out the petroleum fires in Kuwait torched by retreating Iraqi forces at the end of Operation Desert Storm in 1991.
''There's gotta be something more to this than putting out a few wells,'' said Ed Porter, a senior researcher at the American Petroleum Institute. ''I've never seen a contract [summary] like this. There's really not much information there.''

N.B.: All of this (I've read that Halliburton didn't even need to put in a bid!) and the fact that VP Cheney was Halliburton CEO is the story that the Washington Times' editor in chief considers silly. Go figure.
