Daimler/Chrysler - Iraq business connection?
I've heard from an unsubstantiated source that DC was awarded a $13 million+ contract in 2002 to provide "German trucks and spare parts" to the government of Iraq.
Can anyone substantiate this or provide a link to a credible news source? The only corroboration I could find was from Pravda!
I'm assuming they mean the Mercedes Benz utility trucks widely used throughout Europe and the Middle East and that DC knew nothing of the impending conflict.
EDIT - I want to know because I wonder how much money, if any, DC may lose if those contracts are not fullfilled.
