Just a quick quote from Peter Singer, author of CORPORATE WARRIORS, a compelling book about the outsourcing of U. S. military to firms like Blackwater, (in last week’s TIME):
“An owner of a circus faces more regulation and inspection than a private military company.”
For “company” substitute “army” and you’ve get where we’ve come since W. took over. From a “citizen’s army” to a “Private” one. No accountability, for anything, from “war crimes” to the disappeared billions of our tax dollars. Thanks junior.
