American taxpayers are paying their salaries and they are making a whole lot more money than our soldiers.
American contractors like Blackwater and Haliburton (both under investigation for fraudulent and/or criminal behavior) have been making money hand over fist in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Corporations involved in this enterprise include the following:
Aegis Defence Services- $292 million dollar contract
Blackwater USA- amount unkown, purported to earn largest profits
Erinys- $150 millions- their security guards make twice what American soldiers make
Halliburton- $12 billion in profits.
Are these contractors mercenaries? Are these companies just war profiteers exploiting the war for their own gain?
The American people need to know.
