Biography
David Brancaccio interviews U.S. Army Corps of Engineers official Bunny Greenhouse, who was demoted after blowing the whistle on alleged contractor fraud and abuse involving exclusive, non-compete contracts worth billions of dollars to Halliburton and its subsidiary KBR, which have since been awarded new government work in the rebuilding of the gulf coast.





Mrs. Greenhouse's acquisition career began as a Department of the Army Procurement Intern with the Directorate of Contracting, Fort Hood, Texas. Subsequently, Mrs. Greenhouse served in a number of positions and served until her demotion as the Procurement Executive and chief of civilian contracting for the United States Army Corps of Engineers.

Mrs. Greenhouse and some government watchdog groups maintain the she was demoted in retaliation for publicizing reservations she had about the awarding no-bid contracts worth billions of dollars for work in Iraq to a Halliburton subsidiary, Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR). Both the company and the administration deny any wrongdoing.

Mrs. Greenhouse has testified in front of the Senate Democratic Policy Hearing Committee about contracting process. The Defense Department's Inspector General have launched an investigation into the matter. Greenhouses's attorney has asked for an independent investigation. In addition, several Democratic senators have called for Mrs. Greenhouse's reinstatement.

This is par for the course. Demote intelligence and morality and promote failure and corruption. That's how Condolleeeeeeeeeeza and Rove and Delay, Meirs etc. all get privileged positions. Failing upwards.

Moral of story - Keep your eyes closed and your mouth shut, don't let your ears hear what your brain should do, feel only for yourself and you'll go far.
