You can also get it from the DoD IG website.
I have not had time to read this report, but here is a VERY brief summary based on media reports.
Nine of 18 electrocution deaths reported in Iraq were caused by “improper grounding or faulty equipment,” including the January 2008 death of Staff Sgt. Ryan Maseth, the Defense Department’s inspector-general found.
Investigations remain open in five of those cases, according to a summary of the report obtained by the AP.
As soon as I get more I will let you know.
