"The US military has moved to stem the flow of contract money to insurgents, awarding at least 20 companies new contracts worth about $1 billion for military supply transport and suspending seven contractors it found lacking in 'integrity and business ethics.' The new contracts, which were finalized yesterday and will take effect next month, aim to eliminate layers of brokers and middlemen who allegedly skimmed money, and to allow more transparency in a complex web of Afghan subcontractors paid to provide security for the supply truck convoys."
