Halliburton Cited in Iraq Contamination

Why bother doing what your are getting paid hundreds of millions of dollars to do when it is much cheaper to NOT do it?

WASHINGTON - Water supplied to a U.S. base in Iraq was contaminated and the contractor in charge, Halliburton, failed to tell troops and civilians at the facility, according to internal documents from the company and interviews with former Halliburton officials.

Although the allegations came from Halliburton's own water quality experts, the company once headed by Vice President Dick Cheney denied there was a contamination problem at Camp Junction City, in Ramadi.

"We exposed a base camp population (military and civilian) to a water source that was not treated," said a July 15, 2005, memo by William Granger, the official for Halliburton's KBR subsidiary who was in charge of water quality in Iraq and Kuwait.

They know that thier "support the troops" republican buddies in congress will not press an investigation, so it looks like thr troops will take second place to Haliburton share holders.
