It appears that Kellogg, Brown, and Root are at there corrupt ways again. Kellogg, Brown, & Root (KBR for short) is a subsidiary of the Halliburton Corporation. KBR is providing logistical support for military forces in Iraq. This has been a responsibility of Kellogg, Brown, & Root ever since the War In Iraq started.

WASHINGTON — The Halliburton subsidiary that provides food, shelter and other logistics to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan exploited federal regulations to hide details on its contract performance, according to a report released Friday.

The special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction found that Halliburton's Kellogg, Brown & Root Services routinely marked all information it gave to the government as proprietary, whether it was or not. The government promises not to disclose proprietary data so a company's most valuable information is not divulged to its competitors.

By marking all information proprietary — including such normally releasable data as labor rates — the company abused federal regulations, the report says.

Now that this is going on, it only goes to show that not only the Bush Administration is corrupt, but it also shows that some of the logistics providers are cas corrupt. Not only has this war became one of the costliest wars in United States history, it has also become one of most fraudulent wars in history. Kellogg, Brown, & Root has a history with the United States military that goes back to the days of World War II.

As for the contract dibacles, Senate Policy Committees have been looking into these problems since 2004. The following quote is from the Head of the Democratic Policy Committee. Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND), said,

"That in 13 oversight hearings on the war in Iraq the committee found more than $1 billion in waste, fraud, abuse and what it called "shoddy work" by contractors."
Senator Dorgan is correct by what he says, that is it is one of the biggest wastes and fraud in the history of the United States. Of course, no one at the Justice Department will look into this.

This is because Cheney has a major influence over what the Justice Department looks into, what they look into, and how they look into it. The Kellogg, Brown, & Root contract screwups are the largest cases of fraud never to be investigated by the Justice Department. This is because if the Justice Department looks into this, it will put Cheney in the hot seat. I mean Cheney still gets his retiremnt pension from Halliburton.

VERY interesting. Good find.

More than $1 billion in waste, fraud, and abuse - plus "shoddy work" by contractors.


IMO - the Committee will find a LOT more dirt if they look really hard.

This goes deeper than what is being said SC. I think and believe that this paper trail leads all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
