Bunnatine H. Greenhouse's claims of Iraq contract abuse may be investigated

The claims of former U.S. Army Corps of Engineers whistleblower Bunnatine Hayes ("Bunny") Greenhouse that Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown, and Root has been engaged in massive contractor fraud in Iraq may now be investigated by the Department of Justice. These are the claims that Congress refused to investigate, but there were unofficial hearings on before the Senate Democratic Policy Committee. Bunny Greenhouse was demoted from her position after her whistleblowing, and it was a discussion of her charges about no-bid contracts that led Vice President Dick Cheney say "Fuck yourself" to Senator Patrick Leahy on June 22, 2004. (This is not a transcript of their conversation.)
