I know Cheney has nothing to do with these folks, but here they are again.. trying to kill our troops.. I wonder if in their contract they put in the prevailing wage, and lowballed some foreign contractor.. whenever I read about Haliburton all I read is more ka ching.. http://www.armytimes.com/news/2008/07/ap_electrocutions_071808/ NEW YORK â€” Inferior electrical work by private contractors on U.S. military bases in Iraq is more widespread than the Pentagon has acknowledged, according to a published report. A Senate panel investigating the electrocutions of Americans on bases in Iraq was told last week by former KBR Inc. electricians that the contractor used employees with little electrical expertise to supervise subcontractors in Iraq and hired workers who couldnâ€™t speak English. The Pentagon has said 13 Americans have been electrocuted in Iraq since September 2003. It has ordered Houston-based KBR to inspect all the facilities it maintains in Iraq for electrical hazards. The New York Times reported on its Web site Thursday night that many more people have been injured, some seriously, by shocks, according to internal Army documents. A log compiled this year at one building complex in Baghdad disclosed that soldiers complained of receiving electrical shocks in their living quarters almost daily, the paper reported. During just one six-month period â€” August 2006 through January 2007 â€” at least 283 electrical fires destroyed or damaged American military facilities in Iraq, including the militaryâ€™s largest dining hall in the country, according to the documents obtained by the Times.
