I looked for information — easily done — on the internet. Looked, with appropriate skepticism and an eye out against hyperbole, the raving lunatic overdrawn conspiracy theory.
I didn't look far -- because I don't. What's visible is not always easy to see, and I just wanted a quick view of what is visible.
"KBR would build the centers for the Homeland Security Department for
an unexpected influx of immigrants, to house people in the event of a
natural disaster or for new programs that require additional detention
space, company executives said."
the statement is true or not depends upon perspective. In real point of
fact veracity of the statement depends upon contingencies. In other
words — we'll see what happens before we call the facilities
"KBR would build the centers for the Homeland Security Department for an unexpected influx of immigrants, to house people in the event of a natural disaster or for new programs that require additional detention space, company executives said."
There is, of course, a problem with using the term "concentration camps" — quite simply because the comparison is not merely evocative of Nazi Germany but is a clear suggestion that the United States is devolving into such horror.
The simple fact on public record is that in February 2006, KBR, formerly Kellog, Brown, Root — a subsidiary of Halliburton since then detached from the parent company — received a contract for the potential development of "detention centers."
Congress awarded the company (which split from Halliburton on 5 April 2007) 385 million US dollars, presumably to begin work — but in the quick-and-easy search that I did, the record is ambiguous about the agreed fulfillment of contract. Money awarded, job unspecified.
According to the New York Times, no other company profered a bid for the contract -- implying of course that either 1.) the job is of a nature that no other company would be suited for it, or 2.) the fix was in, massive corruption in effect.
