Halliburton: We Don't Love That Dirty Water


Officials of Halliburton's KBR subsidiary, in charge of water quality in occupied Iraq and Kuwait, claim that for a time last year they were supplying Camp Junction City in Ramadi with water whose "level of contamination was roughly 2x the normal contamination of untreated water from the Euphrates River." The Marines stationed there did have bottled water for drinking, though the bad water was apparently used to make coffee, and another KBR employee reports "numerous instances of diarrhea and stomach cramps," says the AP report. Halliburton says it ain't so. This Guardian report has further details.
