In Iraq for the Long Haul

"... At the same time, the Army has hired Halliburton's Kellogg Brown & Root subsidiary to feed and house up to 100,000 troops in Iraq. The contractor could erect large tents, but an Army spokesman said today that the $200 million project ordered last month could also include semipermanent wooden buildings similar to what American troops in Kosovo use.

Taken together, the new troop policy and housing contract represent perhaps the most concrete examples of the Pentagon's long-term commitment to Iraq and acknowledgment that rebuilding the country will probably take years and large numbers of American forces. "

Looks like Cheney will be back at Halliburton before U.S. troops are back from Iraq.
