Summary
"The book explores how the United States' war on terrorism, in both Iraq and Afghanistan, has required the US military to employ thousands of contracted civilians working for US and foreign Private Military and Private Security Companies (PMSCs). The actions and operations of unsupervised PMSCs creates an environment that has the potential to not only negatively influence tactical US objectives, but could also harm strategic local capacity-building initiatives. Given the military and political importance of US military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, this project provides a much-needed analysis of the interaction between commercial entities, military operations, and policy objectives. This analysis will also identify the reactions and policy responses to these security issues faced by the United States military today"--
