According to a New York Times article on July 13, 2002, “reporters Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta Jr. reported that Halliburton had profited significantly from the war on terror: ‘From building cells for detainees at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba to feeding American troops in Uzbekistan, the Pentagon is increasingly relying on a unit of Halliburton called KBR [Kellogg Brown & Root],’ they wrote, noting that Halliburton’s KBR subsidiary was the ‘exclusive logistics supplier for both the Navy and the Army, providing services like cooking, construction, power generation and fuel transportation. The contract recently won from the Army is for 10 years and has no lid on costs, the only logistical arrangement by the Army without an estimated cost.’ ”
