It's been more than two years since the U.S. withdrew almost all military forces from Iraq, but the multibillion-dollar logistics contract to support American troops there will likely go on for the better part of another decade, records show.
A federal judge last week dismissed a lawsuit by contractor KBR that had argued the taxpayers should pay millions of dollars in legal bills rung up by the company as it defended itself against other lawsuits accusing it of wrongdoing.
A federal appeals court on Thursday revived dozens of lawsuits by soldiers and others who claim they were harmed by improper waste disposal while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
U.S. soldiers deployed to Iraq between 2003 and 2004 allegedly were fed ice that was shipped in unsanitized containers used as temporary morgues.
The federal government is suing Kellogg, Brown & Root Services Inc., charging that the defense contractor submitted false claims and took kickbacks in connection to a U.S. Army contract in Iraq.
