Mission Accomplished! Again!

The headline: Halliburton lost track of government property in Iraq

An understatement, to say the least. Here's a quote from the above AP story:

"A third or more of the government property Halliburton Co. was paid to manage for the U.S.-led Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq could not be located by auditors, investigative reports to Congress show.

Halliburton's KBR subsidiary ''did not effectively manage government property'' and auditors could not locate hundreds of CPA items worth millions of dollars in Iraq and Kuwait this summer and fall, Inspector General Stuart W. Bowen reported to Congress in two reports."

Now we can't even get the profiteering right?
