If you ever wanted to know about US mercenaries and just how low they can go, this is the guy who wrote the book. It’s called Blackwater, and it’s not pretty, but it’s one compelling read. It will wake you right up to the dangers of privatizing everything–including the worst of the worst, namely war. So far, Blackwater and all its false fronts have been immune from prosecution, but that could all change if the government of Iraq manages to cut enough of its puppet strings.
Let’s hope so!
