Army Sends More Mercenaries to Iraq to Comply With Treaty by Violating It


By davidswanson - Posted on 10 November 2011

Or as the Pentagon Post puts it:

As American troops head out of Iraq, U.S. officials are being forced to bring in more private security contractors.

The withdrawal of the remaining troops from Iraq — 33,000 at last count — has caused U.S. officials to move quickly to fill a series of security gaps to ensure the continued protection of American diplomatic personnel as well as U.S. goods.
