Halliburton paid for hauling empty trucks
Sun Herald |
"Twelve current and former truckers who regularly made the 300-mile re-supply run from Camp Cedar in southern Iraq to Camp Anaconda near Baghdad told Knight Ridder that they risked their lives driving empty trucks while their employer, a subsidiary of Halliburton Inc., billed the government for hauling what they derisively called 'sailboat fuel.' ... In addition to interviewing the drivers, Knight Ridder reviewed KBR records of the empty trips, dozens of photographs of empty flatbeds and a videotape that showed 15 empty trucks in one convoy... 'Sometimes we would go with empty trailers; we would go both ways,' said one driver who goes by the nickname Swerve and declined to be named for fear of retribution. 'We'd turn around and go back with empty trailers.'"
