slimjim, the article respectfully answers your question. See below...emphasis added is mine.
"The auditors have raised questions about the support and the documentation rather than questioning [i] the fact that we have incurred the costs [/i]," Ms. Mann said in an e-mail response to questions. "Therefore, it would be completely wrong to say or imply that any of these costs that were incurred [i] at the client's direction for its benefit [/i] are 'overcharges.' "
All I'll say is that I'm here in Iraq and very intimate with the process. Actually, I'll say one more thing: the LOGCAP contract is 100% based on documentable costs only. At no time is there a capitalistic "buy low, sell high" concept used or even allowed.
Please, please remember and realize the purpose of the American media. Hint: it has something to do with making money, and very little to do with objective truth.
