This is a disappointing piece of news which includes -

"Many within DOD (the Department of Defense) have lost or are losing all remaining confidence in KBR's ability to successfully and repeatedly perform the required electrical support services mission in Iraq," wrote Graff, commander of the Defense Contract Management Agency, in a Sept. 30 letter.

They were there for the last president ~they remain during this presidency~ and they will probably still be there after.
