Dems Allege Conflicts With 2 Cos. in Iraq

AP

Waxman, Dingell, Dorgan and Wyden have issued a report, made a statement, and sent a letter to Rumsfeld, highlighting conflicts of interest of two different contractors involved in Iraq reconstruction.

These contractors, Parsons and CH2M, have oversight responsibilities in Iraq, what the Dems call "watchdog contracts" over public works, water construction projects, and energy infrastructure projects. Yet they have numerous business partnerships with the firms, including Bechtel, that are actually heading the projects. The contracts were awarded by the Coalition Provisional Authority, with no bidding process or oversight by the Pentagon.
