Whose Side Are They On?

Saw this on Alternet. Yet another reason (completely ignored rape would be the first one) why letting privately contracted companies run military operations in war zones just doesn't work. Apparently KBR's excuse for electrocuting several US soldiers in faulty shower installations is "It's a war zone, what do you expect?". Well in a war zone I would expect the enemy to want to electrocute me, but not a private company supposedly paid to help me.
