Black Budget Items

Noah Shachtman picks up on another one:

More than $20 billion in U.S. government contracts for work in Iraq and Afghanistan has gone unidentified "foreign companies whose identities — at least so far — are impossible to determine," according to a new study from the Center for Public Integrity.

That's even more than the $16 billion earned by former Halliburton subsidiary KBR. Private security firm DynCorp came behind KBR, raking in $1.8 billion between 2004 and 2006. By comparison, Blackwater USA -- whose guards were just subpoenaed by a federal grand jury, BTW -- nabbed a mere $485 million...

Bandar Bu$h strikes again, one supposes.

It must be nice to hold the lien on L'il Boots, or profitable anyway...
