I adore the paragraph:
"KBR has angered Republicans as well as Democrats in Washington thanks to recent sexual assault and tax evasion scandals."

One wonders if KBR had paid their tax and/or their contibutions to party funds via K Street as usual, would they be in this position even if US soldiers had become very ill indeed.

It's a salutary lesson. If you want to avoid prosecution for your company's dodgy doings remember to pay your contributions properly and regularly. 

(We got rid of the Brown Envelope stuffed with £50's during the 'Cash for questions' scandal. But it didn't change too much, look at the Al_Yamamah scandal, and present Parliamentary expenses problems.)

Oh well, here we are in the best of all possible worlds: it's a good job judgement over the world isn't given unto me.
