American electricians who worked for KBR, the Houston-based defense contractor that is responsible for maintaining American bases in Iraq and Afghanistan, said they repeatedly warned company managers and military officials about unsafe electrical work, which was often performed by poorly trained Iraqis and Afghans paid just a few dollars a day.Now we see how a profit is turned by KBR & it's ilk. Exploiting the poorly trained, & screwing our brave & glorious military. As long as KBR keeps kicking the money back in contributions to the Republican party & candidates & causes, it's OK w/ the current administration & Congress, however.
