"It is not entirely clear how Waltrip managed to get rehired by KBR". KBR is well known for hiring trash. They do most of their hiring out of Houston and hire the dumbest rocks they can find. It does not surprise me a bit that they would hire an individual of this caliber. KBR is a laughing stock in Iraq and Afghanistan. They are the biggest jokes in theater. It would not surprise me if this is not the only case. Prepare for a whole lot more of these cases in the near future.

You don't have to serve in the War Zone, to be convicted of a crime, against a child.

Currently, there is an employee at Montgomery County Ride-On, who was CONVICTED of child sexual battery/child abuse against a 12 year old child. He was allowed to keep his job, whereas the victims father, also a Ride-On driver, a 2 time employee of the month & a winner of Best Transit Operator, who once got the abuser his job w/ Ride-On, was let go, for bringing charges against a co-worker, amongst other things.

Just goes to show you.... just because your a pedophile, or possess child porn, you can keep your job w/ dignity.

Maybe KBR rehired him hoping that he would eventually get caught by the Iraqis and later slaughtered like the swine that he is.

I would definitely sign a petition to have all pedophiles sent overseas as contracted drivers.

I pray this swine's truck gets blown up.

I wonder if someone droped a pedophile bomb on the US, we're over run with them. They should make it a law...if you're caught with child porn, you loose your US citizenship and get deported.

Not every one is trash or dumb that KBR hires. They have to go through an extensive background check and piles of government paperwork. If they did hire someone like that it must have not shown up on the background check. My husband works his butt off over there up to 14 hours per day, so the military can spend their time doing what they do best. Fight for our country. He is also ex military. Just because a small handfull of employees are like this stated individual there are many thousands more who are not.

I did 30 months in Iraq working for KBR! I seen alot of wrong things that were done with upper management, some of these supposed leaders were corrupt, liers, thieves, and prejudice! What is incredible, is how if one of the kbr tradesmen get in trouble in one base, they just move him to another! I am a prior U.S. Marine, I never worked for such un discipline organization as KBR. All you have to do his work for a year, and start hearing some of the sick behavior comming from H.R. It is totally un acceptable to hire men that have never had any experience in a military organization,let alone with no previous experience in the job you have been given! And by the way, they moved there businees to keep from litigation, due to not paying time and a half after 8 hrs. a day! All the other U.S. contractors pay time and a half!
