Is this really better than the Army could do?

The argument for outsourcing is that private companies can perform certain tasks better and cheaper than the military can. With Halliburton, however, neither "better" nor "cheaper" seem to be working.

For the latest example, check out this post at Main and Central about a snafu that lead to the company supplying our troops in Iraq with contaminated drinking water. Not just untreated water from the Euphrates, either. The water had twice the level of contaminants as the untreated water. That's what I call value-added!

Pithy last line from the post:
Just what our troops in Iraq need. Republican water. Full of shit.
