US Inspector General – Haliburton Delivered Dangerous Water to Troops

A recently released report by the US Inspector General concludes that Haliburton did in fact deliver unclean water to US troops stationed in Iraq. According to the report, dozens of soldiers fell sick, suffering ‘skin abscesses, cellulitis, skin infections, diarrhea and other illnesses after using the ‘discolored, smelly water for personal hygiene and laundry.’

When asked about the report during a press briefing on Monday, Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell dismissed the company’s negligence.
