From Bloomberg Business News:
" KBR Inc. was selected for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011 for military support services in Iraq, the Army said. The Army announced its decision yesterday only hours after the Justice Department said it will pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of taking kickbacks from two subcontractors on Iraq-related work."
The decay that Bush and Cheney spread through our government continues. Here's a laugh for you:
“Defense contractors cannot take advantage of the ongoing war effort by accepting unlawful kickbacks,” Assistant Attorney General Tony West said in a statement."
They can't? Who knew? You sure would have never heard such an absurd sentiment from a Bush era Assistant Attorney General. They knew what war was for in that administration.
