Letter To LA Times Regarding Parsons Work in Iraq

The following Letter is to the L A Times:

"Your articleContractor’s Plans Lie Among Ruins of Iraq – Los Angeles Times cites Parsons, a large Pasadena based engineering and construction company, from falling dramatically short of its goals in rebuilding health and security infrastructure in Iraq.   Shoddy workmanship and lax government oversight were given as important causes.
I am a retired  Parsons employee having worked for the company for almost 25 years. Parsons is blessed with some of the finest management and engineering personnel in its industry, and has logged in some of the most successful and difficult projects in history.  When the facts are all in, I would venture to say that the complexities of finding local contractors who are skilled in the trades, war turbulence, and poor government direction are the principal reasons that work goals have fallen short.  Parsons management takes its assignments seriously, and is a first class organization.
