Lawsuit Alleging Drug and Medical Devices Financing Terrorism in Iraq

A lawsuit claims that several drug and medical device companies, including General Electric and Pfizer, knew that the free medicines and supplies they gave the Iraqi government were being sold on the black market to fund terrorist attacks on American troops between 2005 and 2009.
