Latest Press Release from Halliburton:
Halliburton and its subsidiary KBR today issued the following statement following confirmation of recovered bodies in Iraq.
“We can not confirm that these are KBR employees. While we are not yet certain of the identification of these brave individuals, and no matter who
they are, we at Halliburton are saddened to learn of these deaths and are working with the authorities so the families can begin the grieving and
healing process. Every member of the Halliburton team receives warnings about the dangers of this work but these brutal attacks are unsettling and
appalling. We will assist the employees’ families in any way we can to comfort and sustain them throughout this difficult time.
Our workers in Iraq are courageous volunteers in service to their country and their loved ones. They work alongside the troops in dangerous conditions
but Halliburton employees have also had to endure political derision from home. Every civilian working in Iraq needs and deserves support from
Americans especially now.
Each of the colleagues we have lost since our work began in Iraq has brought special skills and talents that helped the soldiers and/or alleviated the
suffering of the Iraqi people. We extend both our prayers and thanks to each person who has made the decision to assist in this mission.
To protect the privacy of the employees' families, we will not release their names or discuss details of any incident at this time. We strongly urge
you to respect the privacy of the families during this difficult situation.”
