Want to be a Security Contractor in Iraq?

Post  98golf on Sat Dec 10, 2011 12:20 am

This program aired on "Frontline" on PBS back in 2005 and was updated in 2006. Despite its age, it is still an outstanding look at the private contracting industry. By following the provided link, you can read a great deal of background info on the show and additional interviews. The best part is, you can actually watch the entire one hour show for free on the website. It is worth it.

As the Army struggles to meet recruitment numbers, FRONTLINE takes a hard look at private contractors servicing U.S. military supply lines, running U.S. military bases, and protecting U.S. diplomats and generals. Between the logistics giant Halliburton and a myriad of armed security companies, private military contractors comprise the second largest "force" in Iraq, far outnumbering all non-U.S. forces combined. There are as many as 100,000 civilian contractors and approximately 20,000 private security forces.

Here is another link for those of you who may not have Windows Media Player. It is to the "Private Warrior" video on YouTube. It runs just over 38 minutes long.
