      Halliburton lawsuit lists Super Bowl party
      UPI

      September 11, 2006

      WASHINGTON -- A lawsuit filed in Washington claims
      that US taxpayers funded a big screen TV and snacks
      that Halliburton Co. sent to Iraq for the 2005 Super
      Bowl.

      The lawsuit filed by a former Halliburton employee
      also alleged that the Houston-based company defrauded
      the government by double- and triple-billing for
      Internet, food, and athletic services provided for US
      soldiers, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

      Halliburton officials said that the actions by KBR,
      its division responsible for the military mess halls
      in Iraq, were misinterpreted. The company said that
      all of its Super Bowl activities were covered under
      recreation and troop morale boosting clauses in its
      contract.

      The suit, the latest salvo involving Halliburton's
      contentious multibillion-dollar services contract, was
      filed under the False Claims Act, designed to prevent
      war profiteering by allowing citizens to sue on behalf
      of the government and recover a portion of damages.

      Halliburton was run by Vice-President Dick Cheney from 1995-2000.
