Swiss Co. Accused of Stiffing U.S. $750 Million for Food to Troops in AfghanistanSubmitted by go213mph on Sun, 05/27/2012 - 09:23
NOTE: What burns me up about this story is why in the hell was the DoD buying food for our troops from a company in Switzerland? The US economy could use the "business". Of course I know the reason...war is a racket. When it was decided that a war needed to be fought to enrich war profiteers I guess they had to include the swiss multinational corporations in the spoils of war too. Even though I don't beleive the swiss committed a single solider.
"Seven years after it was hired to provide food to troops in Afghanistan, a Swiss company has been accused of overcharging the Department of Defense about three-quarters of a billion dollars.
Supreme Foodservice AG of Switzerland has been paid $5.5 billion since 2005 to deliver water and food, including fresh fruit and vegetables, to U.S. forces at about 246 sites in Afghanistan"
