WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military said on Wednesday it would soon take over Halliburton's role of getting fuel into Iraq, a decision that follows a draft Pentagon audit that found Vice President Dick Cheney's old firm may have overcharged for the job.

The Pentagon's Defense Energy Support Center (DESC) said it had expanded its traditional mandate of providing fuel to the U.S. military and would now be responsible for importing and distributing fuel products to the Iraqi people.

Ding dong, the witch is....well, not dead, but it's awfully nice to see that the Pentagon is willing to break ranks with the current regime. Seriously, all the backdoor deals and nepotism was getting a little over the fucking top, dontcha think?

Anyway, I'm out for Pal A's for barbeque (Psycho James is cookin' critter in the cold, apparently) and Risk and Rummy, and, oh yes, much booze. Enjoy thyselves, children, and try not to kill anyone, okay? There's enough of that shit going on in the rest of the world...
