    This isn't the first time that our patriotic privatized companies have given less than the contract to our troops. Let's see if the military sites are reprimanded and the KBR ones are let go.

    What are the stats on privatizing all these former military functions and saving US money. As good as those for Blackwater?

    In a REAL free market, companies like those should have every right to such contracts. Where the PROBLEM lies, is when those companies are proven to be crony companies of the people involved in making the wars they get contracts for.

    If they do take what are normal miltary functions, then they need to provide it better or cheaper than when the military does it. They also have to be willing to go in harms way just like our military does.

    I never had problems eating in any of the messhalls that the Marine Corps personell ran.
