And for the contract to build a fence along our borders...

The contract goes to..... Halliburton.

Well, it's a safe guess anyway.
Excerpt: Through its Secure Border Initiative, the Bush administration intends to not simply buy high-tech equipment to help it patrol the borders -- a tactic it has also already tried, at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars, with limited success. It is also asking the contractors to devise and build a whole new border strategy.
Update: Or as Josh Marshall said (and I wish I had) "I guess Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrup Grumman bid so it can seem like a competitive process when Halliburton gets the contract?"
