Meh Culpa

Would you like a little corpse with that soda?

The Army Times reports that Joshua Eller,  a civilian CAD technician who served at Joint Base Balad in Iraq, has filed a lawsuit against Halliburton and KBR accusing  contractors  of serving ice contaminated with “body fluids and putrefied remains”  as well as  food expired and gone bad;  of exposing the entire base to fumes from an open air burn pit used to incinerate medical waste, including human body parts that were sometimes carried off by wild dogs;  of failing to chlorinate the base’s swimming pool that allegedly contained sewage; and of neglecting to clean water from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers that troops used for  showers.

Halliburton denies responsibility, saying it broke off ties with KBR in 2007.  KBR had no comment.
