The Army’s decision is the third time it has extended the deadline for Halliburton to justify undocumented expenses, including $1.8 billion of $4.5 billion that Halliburton charged U.S. taxpayers for work in Iraq and Kuwait, which the Defense Contract Audit Agency recently reported the company has yet to substantiate.
