Scott Bloch appeared on an international television show, “The Heat” on CCTV America, concerning the problems contractors face in Iraq and Afghanistan. The segment, entitled, “Is US outsourcing the operations in Iraq and Afghanistan,” interviewed Mr. Bloch as well as his client, Daniel Hoagland who suffers from oropharyngeal cancer due to his dental problems he developed while working for KBR in Iraq. This powerful interview shows the degree to which contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan and their insurance carriers bypass the law, disregarding the human suffering this causes. Mr. Bloch speaks about the class action against contractors and insurance companies in this interview, focusing on the opportunity to bring justice and appropriate care to the thousands who have suffered after their tours in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan.
