Halliburton Defers Billing U.S. for Meals

The Halliburton Company announces it will defer billing the Pentagon $140 million in meals for U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East until bookkeeping irregularities are resolved. The oil services giant says it will suspend billing the government until it can resolve discrepancies over the number of meals ordered and the number actually served. Hear NPR's John Burnett.
