369. Pentagon General lies to Congress about KBR Iraq water contract

On July 9, 2008, Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) accused Major General Jerome Johnson (see item 360) of lying to Congress. Johnson who was head of the Army Field Support Command from June 2004 to July 2007 testified in April 2007 that there were no widespread problems with water not for drinking but for hygienic purposes supplied by the contractor KBR to troops in Iraq when, in fact, a March 31, 2007 letter informed Pentagon officials the Inspector General had found that there were. The DOD IG has also opened an investigation into the general’s remarks.
