Riley Bechtel, billionaire boss of the war-profiteering corporation has gained hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts to rebuild Iraq, has also won big transport and nuclear contracts in Britain. After making a killing from the Iraq war he was secretly awarded a CBE in 2003. His award was for “services to UK-American commercial relations”.
Bechtel is represented in the UK by LLM, the sleazy PR firm set up by New Labour insiders which boasts to clients it can get them in front of anyone in government. Wonder if these facts are related?
