I’ve been tracking this since back in November and posting about it on another forum. A bigger piece of the puzzle fell into place today. Time to share here.
To use the term I know and love…………. Something is definitely not Kosher.
We’ll start with two background articles (so you’ll understand what’s going on). Following that, there’s today’s update.

Kuwaiti Co. Indicted For Fraud In US Military Food Contracts.
A Kuwaiti company that has been a leading food supplier for the U.S. military in Iraq was indicted Monday in U.S. federal court for allegedly overcharging the Defense Department on $8.5 billion worth of food contracts.
Public Warehousing Company K.S.C., a unit of Agility (AGLTY.KW), was indicted in Atlanta on multiple charges of conspiracy and fraud relating to three major contracts to supply food to U.S. troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Jordan.

Agility Attempts To Vault Fraud Charges.
Agility, a Kuwait-based multi-billion dollar logistics company spawned by the U.S. invasion of Iraq, is facing criminal charges for over-billing the U.S. taxpayer on more than $8.5 billion worth of food supply contracts in the Iraq war zone. If the lawsuit, scheduled for February 8, is successful, the company could owe the U.S. government as much as $1 billion.
Originally known as Public Warehousing Corporation (PWC), Agility boasts that it once supplied one million meals a day to U.S. soldiers and contractors in the Middle East. The company’s Mercedes trucks hauled delicacies from ice cream to lobster tails to feed soldiers living on military bases scattered throughout Iraq. Today it has new contracts to provide food to the U.S. Agency for International Development in Djibouti in the Horn of Africa and – until about a month ago – was supposed to ramp up food delivery to the troops newly posted in southern Afghanistan.

Expanded charges against subsidiaries of Kuwait logistics company.
Prosecutors have expanded their case against a company that was paid billions to supply food for the U.S. military in Kuwait and Iraq by charging two of the company’s subsidiaries with inflating prices and defrauding the U.S. government.
The charges, which are under seal but confirmed by the company, target Kuwaiti logistics firm Public Warehousing Co.’s subsidiaries in Kuwait and the U.S. The parent company was charged in November with making false statements, submitting false claims and committing wire fraud. The company, also known as Agility, has received more than $8.5 billion in food supply contracts and said it has been the U.S. military’s chief food supplier in Kuwait and Iraq since 2003. Federal prosecutors say its contract with the government is still in effect and scheduled to expire in December 2010.
Several court hearings have been delayed as the company worked to reach a settlement with prosecutors. And the firm’s lawyers have argued that prosecutors failed to properly serve the company because it sent the indictment to the company’s U.S. subsidiaries instead of through diplomatic channels in Kuwait.

I was concerned about this from the start. But now, my gut is now telling me some things VERY loudly………
It’s becoming obvious this is definitely some sort of end-around by Obama & Co. to try and ‘get’ Teh Eeeevil Booooooooooosh and Darth Cheney, along with everyone else they can remotely tie into the matter.
This company seems to be owned, run and staffed by extremely well-connected people (Muslim ownership and non-Muslim management). Plus, they’re into just about every nation and business aspect world-wide requiring logistics and consulting.
I’m also thinking Dear Leader has some of his owners demanding the US military food contract and logistics be theirs……. and yeah, I’m on point enough to think at least part of the reason is possibly to ‘play around’ with the food for our people.
Final thought for now……… It really is a wonder to me why this hasn’t been reported on in any major media here and blown way out of proportion with only one slant allowed…… ‘The contracts were let under GWB’s administration, so they must be dirty’.
More when I find out more.
