Halliburton

November 8, 2006

Halliburton supports an organization like Brave New Films’ right to free speech—even when they have the facts wrong.

KBR currently has more than 50,000 employees and subcontractors in Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Djibouti who daily face danger and hostilities to ensure that our troops have the best food, shelter and quality of life possible.

The U.S. military has command and control of all KBR convoys in Iraq, such as supplying pre-trip threat assessments and determining routes, and is required to provide security for KBR’s employees through the company’s contract with the Army.

By all accounts, KBR’s logistical achievements in support of the troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan have been nothing short of amazing. To date under the LOGCAP III contract, KBR has:

— Prepared nearly 411 million meals

— Washed more than 21.7 million bundles of laundry

— Produced 5.85 billion gallons of water

— Transported more than 648 million gallons of military fuel

— Hosted more than 73.5 million patrons in MWR (Morale, Welfare and Recreation) facilities

— Delivered nearly 205.7 million pounds of mail

— Logged more than 100 million miles driven in support of the troops, with more than 650 trucks on the road on any given day

Try looking at both sides of the argument before bashing our nations companies and governments. If you don’t agree with the war, then protest the war or move to Canada. Don’t be hippocritical and make a documentary, wildly profitting from ridiculing companies, CEOs, and the US government. Also, don’t complain when there is a proliferation of attacks on the US and innocent people around the world.
