Iraq war victims allege pharmaceutical companies' bribery led to U.S. troop deaths

Big Pharma helped death of US troops in IraqThe families of dozens of U.S. troops killed or injured during the war in Iraq filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against several U.S. and European pharmaceutical and medical supply companies, alleging that the corporations knowingly financed the anti-American militia Mahdi Army through bribes and kickbacks to officials at a government ministry controlled by the group.
