Default NYT: Iraq Shuns US Businesses

The linked NYT story describes the lack of US business participation in Iraq, while billions of business is being negotiated with Turkey, Iran, France, Britain, etc...

Looks like the US Business Roster, to date, of KBR, etc..., are not very well thought of and not able to compete for Iraqi contracts.

As a basic post-conflict question: Isn;t this the Embassy turf???
