From USA Today, today, regarding the Mosul base mess tent:
A sturdier structure designed to replace the mess is being built at the base, but the work has been plagued by delays. Hastings said workers from KBR [Kellogg, Brown & Root], a subsidiary of Halliburton, were supposed to have completed it by Christmas.
Two questions: Who the hell is running the show over there? And how many more have to die for the cause of gross incompetence?
