Another False Ending: Contracting Out the Iraq Occupation

Bill Quigley and Laura Raymond, Truthout: "Another false ending to the Iraq war is being declared. Nearly seven years after George Bush's infamous 'Mission Accomplished' speech on the USS Abraham Lincoln, President Obama has just given a major address to mark the withdrawal of all but 50,000 combat troops from Iraq. But while thousands of US troops are marching out, thousands of additional private military contractors (PMCs) are marching in. The number of armed security contractors in Iraq will more than double in the coming months."
