Net the minnows, forget the sharks...

From the Herald...

US says two indicted in Kuwait fuel scheme

18.03.05 11.40am

A former Kellogg, Brown & Root employee and a Kuwaiti businessman have been indicted on charges they attempted to defraud the US government of more than US$3.5 million on a fuel supply contract for military operations in Kuwait, US prosecutors said on Thursday.

Jeff Alex Mazon, the former KBR employee, and LaNouvelle General Trading and Contracting Co. managing partner Ali Hijazi, were indicted on 10 counts of fraud by a federal grand jury in Illinois, the Justice Department said in a statement.

KBR is a unit of Halliburton Co.

Yup, and the trail will get as far up that tree as the Abu Ghraib enquiry got up theirs... about six inches.
