The mother of a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq this past January filed a lawsuit yesterday in a Pennsylvania state court against KBR, the defense contractor that was in charge of inspecting the wiring at the base where Sgt. Ryan Maseth died -- from electrocution. This has brought to attention a 11 other fatal electrocutions in Iraq, leading to both a congressional investigation and a Pentagon inquiry.
An yet this company will still be allowed to collect millions upon millions of American taxpayer bucks for their contracts in Iraq. Its unconscionable, and KBR needs to be banned from getting any federal contracts..ever. This soldier isn't the first person to die in Iraq because of KBR and he certainly won't be the last.
