The government should leave itself concerned only with paying out...or defraying...premiums and deductibles. By making the payments wind its' way into...through...and out of a government department...they take a cut one way or another. This was Obama's idea of employment, I guess. Who knows what this failed administration had in mind.

There were similar stories of Haliburton and other contractors coming out of Kuwait not long after the Iraq invasion. They were basically sitting around the hotels waiting to be told what to do. Taking a few phone calls and eating, while getting paid substantial six figure salaries.

It's the Halliburton plan. They've been doing this since the first contractors hit the streets of Bagdad, Kuwait and Kabul.

The MINUMUM markup for anything supplied to contractors in Iraq or Afghanistan was 500%. 1000% was the norm.

Just a couple of examples. Food for OUR soldiers. The contractor, on the ground, in Iraq actually in the war zone, was paid about $5 a plate for feeding the soldiers. By the time we get the bill from Halliburton it's $25 a plate.

Laundry ?? The contractor in Iraq was getting $11 per duffle bag. WE were paying $75 per duffle.

If construction company needs a new Chevy Suburban. Do they put a man on a plane, fly him to Kuwait, where he walks into the Chevy dealer there (Alghanim Industries, I used to work there) and buy new truck for say $45,000 and drive it home ??? No, it has to be "requisitioned" By the time the truck arrives WE paid more than $200,000 for it.

This has nothing to with the dangers involved. The way they do it is this. Halliburton has the contract. They then sublet that contract, then that company sublets it again and again and again. Each level is guaranteed a certain profit margin. Many of the sublet companies are nothing more than foreign country based shell corporations set up by Halliburton itself. They only exist on paper. Then to add insult to injury, once Halliburton gets the final bill, they get to add 3% to the total for "processing" !!!!
Thanks from Tony
