Busy day, and I haven’t nearly begun to catch up on the day’s happenings in the world. I’ll have an update about North Korea in a bit. This article from Marjorie Cohn caught my eye today, especially in light of the movie I just finished viewing, regarding the gross abuses and windfall profits of the military contractors, including Halliburton’s subsidiary Kellogg, Brown & Root. Interestingly, also Dick Cheney’s old corporation, but that’s generally been known to the people reading here most likely.
The movie was called Iraq for Sale, and it puts you face to face with some of the survivors and families of the military contractor abuses in Iraq. People who were treated as human debris and a lack of care for their safety or the safety of soldiers. Contractors who were intimately involved in torture.
It’s all part of the case we will build, and there will be speculations here but in the end only the facts will remain to convict the guilty.
I appreciated the opportunity to view this film.
Update: Hat-tip to Maru for Marjorie’s article, forgot to include above.
