Government watchdog calls for banning Halliburton from contracts
19 Aug. 2004

WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 (HalliburtonWatch.org) -- The government should consider suspending or debarring Halliburton from receiving future government contracts given their inability to account for $1.8 billion and numerous cases of corporate misconduct, the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) said today. �By law, the federal government is prohibited from doing future business with risky companies," said Danielle Brian, Executive Director of POGO. "Halliburton�s accounting fiasco is the clearest example we have seen in years that merits suspension or debarment by the government," she said. "Halliburton is treating our nation�s taxpayer dollars like Monopoly money.�
