Dedicated KBR/Halliburton Whistleblower, Ms. Sparky, has been the target of a weasel attack by KBR, who blocked her site on their company servers. Anyone working overseas for the company, is now blocked and cannot read or communicate with Ms. Sparky if it goes through any of the KBR servers.
Ms. Sparky is still putting together information for the legal actions which are proceeding on against KBR. Please read the following information to see if you know any of the people, or any information which may be useful in prosecuting and winning the cases currently in process. Thanks, GFS
KBR has blocked MsSparky.com from their servers. I'm not surprised. What does surprise me is it took them this long.
KBR has blocked "Ms Sparky" from their servers May 1, 2009
As of yesterday (March 31, 2009) MsSparky.com has been block from the vast majority of KBR's servers and for those complaining, there's not a damn thing I can do about it. Sorry!! KBR owns the servers and therefore can censor the info you receive....kinda like North Korea! So for those KBR employees in the US, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Dubai who still want to keep up with what's going on via MsSparky.com, here are a few suggestions.
1. For those KBR employees in the States, you will have to access MsSparky.com from home, Starbucks or any other system. For those in the Middle East, access MsSparky.com from the internet in your room if you have it. Be a good co-worker and copy and save it as a PDF so it can not be changed and then attach it to an email and send it to your friends via their non KBR email accounts, ie Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail etc. If KBR is even still allowing you access those. Sending a "link" for MsSparky.com won't work. You must copy the text of the post.
2. Try accessing MsSparky.com from a non KBR computer. Try a military MWR, military office or another contractors server or a friends internet access from their room.
3. Ask someone from the States to read MsSparky.com, copy it, save as a PDF and send it to you if possible.
4. I will be setting up an email list to send out "text only" copies of my posts. Unfortunately is won't include comments. If you would like to leave a comment on those posts, just email me your comment and I will add it myself.
5. If you would like to be on that email list, send me an email via the "Contact Us" page (tab at top on right) or email@example.com. I am the only one that can see your email address. Give me a couple of days to get this going. If you have a specific question ask it and I will try to answer it for you.
6. You can continue to send information to firstname.lastname@example.org or the "Contact Us" page if you have access. Or, print it and mail it to DJ Crawford, PO Box 1278, Battle Ground, WA 98604.
I am going to look into redirecting links and cross posting my posts at other sites. I'll let you know. I suspect that KBR will block those as well. All I can say is....we must be doing something right.
Keep those cards and letters coming!! LOL
Bruce Stanski Now Works For Fluor!!
It's was confirmed by a MsSparky.com reader!! Bruce Stanski former President of KBR Government & Infrastructure is to take over the Government section of Fluor. Hmmm Something just doesn't seem right about that! If I was the DoD and Dyncorp I would just be crying foul! Here's the comment they posted with the email trail.

Ms Sparky-After I read your post I just shot out an email using the same email format as KBR. (same as My Two Cents posted) Damned if I didn't luck out. Here's how the email went:
"Are you the same Bruce Stanski that was the President of KBR G&I"
"the one and only"
"I guess that answers that rumor. Best of luck to you."
I don't think I will be hearing from him again.
I want to think he left because it was just not an ethical company to work for. But then, it all happened under his watch.
Having Stanski can only be good for Fluor.
Ms Sparky's Response:
What a super sleuth! Please forward me that email!
We are still looking for this information!!
This is your chance to make a difference!! You can email them to me at email@example.com If you do not want an email trail, save them or print them and mail them to:
PO Box 1278
Battle Ground, WA 98604
If you are not comfortable with either one of those methods let me know and I will try to work out something that is comfortable for you.

Here are some recent links to KBR, AIG and Middle East news article that may be of interest to you. These links do not go to MsSparky.com and you should be able to access them.
DoD's New Generator Will Prevent Electric Shock
KBR to appeal Judge's Decision in Soldier Electrocution
KBR, Inc. Q1 2009 Earnings Call Transcript - This is interesting. And on Page 7 (short pages) Bill Utt says, with regard to the increase in KBR lawsuits "I will tell you there's a lot of stuff we see out there that appears to be opportunistic in terms of people more interested in civil suits than they are against alleged perpetrators." All I can really say to this is...I hope the Market Analyst are smarter than that!
A great local article about a Task Force SAFE inspector
Jamie Leigh Jones fights to make KBR's secret arbitration illegal
KBR face new wrongful death suits for burn it exposure
Third Country National Guards not protecting troops or civilians
KBR's Own Memos Undermine Defense For Good Friday Massacre

Those should get you caught up. I still don't have anything conclusive about KBR's LOGCAP IV contracts. As soon as I get something I will let you know. If you know something let me know.
Please forward to those who might be interested in this information. If you are in the States forward to those friends and family in the Middle East.
I know KBR is going to put on the pressure with threats and intimidation. That is their MO. Do what you need to do to take care of yourself and your family. If you need to unsubscribe all together, I get it!
If you have questions you can email me by replying to this Update.
