Unless they are abandoning LOGCAP it won't mean much to Halliburton. LOGCAP is a long term contract that is awarded on a multi year basis for logistical support to the military. When the Clinton administration decided to outsource the daily minutia that was the military's duty to private contractors there are very few companies that have the capacity to perform at a moment's notice to build roads, seaports, bases etc. KBR/Halliburton and Dyncorp are the only ones that I know of.
I also like that he's going to clamp down on cost over-runs. People whine about earmarks but we spend 10 times that for military contract overruns and they don't say squat. Example that helicopter bid was $5 billion over... the earmarks were $8 Billion, and that's just ONE contract !!
We also tend to buy more hardware than we need... do we really need 28 Presidential helicopters ? ;-P
