It's appalling that there is even consideration about them getting bonuses. They have done a seriously incompetent job over there. Unsafe drinking water for the troops, shoddy electrical work that is killing our soldiers, and they still have the contract! People should be at the headquaters with pitchforks!

Does your company sub contract from KBR?



Are local nationals doing the f'ed up work that is inspected by KBR personnel or what? Do you have any details of why the work wasn't properly inspected by qualified personnel? Maybe your company could certify the KBR jobs and make a lot of money?
