    What part of Halliburton's contracts have gone to these 'security contractors' and what part of their charges are profit? It would also be informative to see how 'contractor pay' relates to soldiers pay.
    The private army aspect is indeed troubling, Blackwater is another example. How is the oversight of their organization done? Are they working in conjunction with the army or vice versa?
    Waxman already has a full table on figuring out what is being done by the administration, but this deserves much more coverage and scrutiny.
