Well, it's about time...

...and it's probably too late. In response to a complaint from an Army Corps of Engineers civilian, the FBI has "expanded" an investigation into allegations of contract "irregularities" by Halliburton Co. subsidiary Kellogg Brown & Root Inc. in Iraq and Kuwait. Who was the whistle-blower? A woman, of course--Bunnatine H. Greenhouse. (Why is it never men who blow the whistles?) Greenhouse said Army officials did not justify the award or show that KBR had "unique attributes," as required by procurement law.

Obviously, Greenhouse doesn't understand the meaning of "unique attributes." In this case, it means "direct and profitable connections to Dick Cheney."
