scandal over treatment of outpatients at Walter Reed Army Medical
Center has focused attention on the Army’s decision to privatize the
facilities support workforce at the hospital, a move commanders say
left the building maintenance staff undermanned.
Democratic lawmakers have questioned the decision to hire IAP Worldwide
Services, a contractor with connections to the Bush administration and
to KBR, a Halliburton subsidiary…
sure the whole story is more complicated, but it sure does look bad for
the proponents of the “privatization is always better” gang.
It also looks bad for the Cheney-Halliburton-KBR gang. Some
patriots they turn out to be. Support the troops.
