Can't wait to watch the Congressional Hearings on this one, especially in the House.
And they are more then likely to come. As the rubber stamping no bid government contracts for private corporations, why just ask cheney and the rest "they're the only ones in the world qualified to do the work needed" was said, even the fox parrots kept up that meme, congressional wing will be ordered by their real masters to hold them,in this case KBR.
Nov 27, 2012 - An Iraq war contractor that lost an $85 million verdict to a group of sickened Oregon soldiers has filed a lawsuit seeking to force the federal government to pay the soldiers' damages.
In early November, 12 Oregon National Guard soldiers won the verdict against Kellogg Brown and Root, an engineering and construction firm that helped lead the reconstruction work in post-war Iraq. The soldiers were exposed to a toxin while guarding an Iraqi water plant.
In the new lawsuit, KBR also demands that the government pay more than $15 million in its lawyers' fees.
KBR said in the suit that it had no insurance to cover its wartime work, and the government's refusal to involve itself in lawsuits constitutes a breach of the indemnification agreement.
At least another 130 suits are pending from soldiers in England, Texas, Indiana and West Virginia, as well as other Oregon soldiers who were present at the Iraqi water plant, called Qarmat Ali. read more>>>
KBR, that upstanding private corporation, billions in war profiteering made no questions asked and all with no bidding and quickly rubber stamped by their congressional patriots off the books till the new Executive branch came in and all borrowed, could do no wrong!
The wars, neither one, have yet to be paid for, tax cuts especially for the wealthy came with them and are still in place, but in the sacrifice and blood of those serving and their families, nor have the costs of the results of both with one still winding down!
Them rubber stamped no bid contracts were written and signed and now will the country let these shoddy and inept war profiteering private contractors walk away basking in the huge wealth made as they did those who led the country into abandoning the main missions for even sending the military into that region to destroy another country! All for the glory and power, and easy wealth, of the U.S. of A.!
