Iraq, KBR and What Our Tax Dollars Bought

Not heard much of this Stateside and bit surprised that How war is big business has not angered more people:
"American taxpayers footing the $125 billion bill for rebuilding Iraq are understandably shocked by recent revelations that senior military officers are under investigation for alleged bribery and corruption, on the evidence of a US arms dealer shot dead in 2004. In truth, they don’t know the half of it. Much of the rest they can learn from this book.

The US military contractor Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) has just been awarded a $35 million contract for further electrical work in Iraq, despite the fact that it is currently facing allegations of criminal bribery in Nigeria and the wrongful deaths of Americans at sundry overseas bases."
