Standing Tall And Shooting Straight.

Bunnatine (Bunny) H. Greenhouse is a former chief contracting officer (Principal Assistant Responsible for Contracting (PARC)) of the United States Army Corps of Engineers. On June 27, 2005, she testified to a Democratic Party public committee, alleging specific instances of waste, fraud, and other abuses and irregularities by Halliburton with regard to its operations in Iraq since the Iraq War. She described one of the Halliburton contracts (secret, no-bid contracts awarded to Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR)—a subsidiary of Halliburton) as "the most blatant and improper contract abuse I have witnessed during the course of my professional career."

Bunny Greenhouse is in trouble and she needs your financial help. After standing up to powerful Halliburton and the "good ol' boys" club of the Army Corps of Engineers, Bunny has been demoted and removed from her position as the chief civilian contracting authority of the Corps. In that position, she was able to call into question the legality of the Corps' military command steering billions of dollars of Army contracts, through noncompetitive bidding, to Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg Brown and Root for reconstruction work in Iraq. Enormous amounts of waste and abuse have been uncovered because of her revelations.
