Why are we giving $80 million to the Iraq War profiteer responsible for electrocuting U.S. soldiers?


Call it Dick Cheney's legacy.



The Department of Defense just gave $80 million in bonuses to KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for electrical wiring contracts in Iraq.
But in a dramatic Senate hearing, the DoD's own documents revealed that U.S. soldiers have died via electrocution as a direct result of KBR's shoddy and substandard work.


The Nation has issued a chilling report based on evidence revealed this week. Eighteen U.S. soldiers have died as a result of KBR's work. One of the electrocuted soldiers was a decorated Green Beret whose death was classified by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigations Division as a "negligent homicide."


Click here to demand that the Department of Defense seek criminal charges against the corporate executives responsible and block any new contracts from being awarded to KBR.


KBR/Halliburton is not just distinguished by its close relationship with Dick Cheney, the company's former CEO and the architect of the disastrous invasion of Iraq. It also happens to be the single largest war profiteer from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.


Bush's Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, may still lead the Department of Defense under the Obama administration. But that doesn't mean we can't end the blank checks for Bush and Cheney's cronies and hold war profiteers accountable.


Sign this petition today to ask Secretary Gates to rescind the KBR bonuses, pursue criminal charges against the officials responsible for the electrocution deaths of U.S. soldiers, and stop awarding defense contracts to KBR & Halliburton.

Thank you for working to build a better world.

      I agree with marvin ...

      and credo can be obnoxious for sure, but just use BLOCK SENDER .... or if your email service allows, block credo using that spam filter ... with my email service, this also means that credo receives a message that their message was deleted without opening.
