Over at Defense Tech, P.W. Singer makes an interesting observation:But Drum adds that contractors won't be beyond the reach of military prosecutors much longer. Drum's entire post is here.
Not one contractor of the entire military industry in Iraq has been charged with any crime over the last 3 and a half years, let alone prosecuted or punished. Given the raw numbers of contractors, let alone the incidents we know about, it boggles the mind.
... (contractors) aren't subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, but prosecutors back in the states aren't really interested in spending time bringing civilian cases against them. So they fall between the cracks, able to do just about anything without fear of being held to account.
