10/24/2005: Full Disclosure?
A good portion of Blogtopia is all over the recently released story that four Kellog Brown and Root contractors were slaughtered in Duluiya on September 20. Interestingly enough, while listening to XM this weekend (XM Comedy 150), I heard a recruiting commercial for KBR. Made it sound like a pretty good job, though they didn't talk about some of the working conditions:
The mob grew more frenzied as the gunmen dragged the two surviving Americans from the cab of their bullet-ridden lorry and forced them to kneel on the street.Hmmmmm. Is that the kind of thing they're supposed to tell you about before you hire on?
Killing one of the men with a rifle round fired into the back of his head, they doused the other with petrol and set him alight. Barefoot children, yelping in delight, piled straw on to the screaming man's body to stoke the flames.
