In March, a former KBR employee and a Kuwaiti citizen were indicted on charges of defrauding the U.S. government of more than $3.5 million by inflating the cost of fuel tankers.

A top U.S. Army procurement official said last week that Halliburton's deals in Iraq were the worst example of contract abuse she had seen, a claim KBR rejected as "political rhetoric."
