A scathing Senate report says US contractors in Afghanistan have hired warlords, "thugs," Taliban commanders and even Iranian spies to provide security at vulnerable US military outposts in Afghanistan. The report, published by the Senate Armed Services Committee, says lax oversight and "systemic failures" have led to "grave risks' to US forces, including instances where contractors have employed Afghan subcontractors who were "linked to murder, kidnapping and bribery, as well as Taliban and anti-coalition activities." The chairman of the committee, Sen. Carl Levin, D.-Michigan, said the report was evidence that the US needs to reduce its reliance on contractors. "We need to shut off the spigot of US dollars flowing into the pockets of warlords and power brokers who act contrary to our interests," said Sen. Levin. The committee reviewed roughly 125 unclassified Department of Defense security contracts between 2007 and 2009, and found that there are some 26,000 private security contractors operating in Afghanistan, the majority of whom are Afghan nationals. The review found "systemic failures" of the military oversight for contracts, including the hiring of what Levin called "many too many" security contractors who had been improperly vetted, improperly trained or were not provided weapons.

In some cases, companies were awarded contracts though they had no ability to provide the services needed. In those cases, companies then quickly hired local nationals without proper vetting or security checks. The chaotic system left US facilities and personnel vulnerable to attack. The report found that some Afghan security guards simply walked off their posts at remote forward operating bases.
All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

If there was no enemy of America (not "if" LOL - There really hasn't ever honestly ever been one since we turned on our Russian allies after 1945, starting starvation, embargo and building "our" Iron Curtain, imprisoning them) it has been our STASI CIA/Pentagon Mafia's Job #1 to manufacture themselves one, to extort us and murder us and countless other victims with.

The Marshall Plan was a recipe for the secret, subversive, corporate-federal-communal-socialist military conquest of America.

When one adopts the tools of tyranny to "battle with it", one has already lost the war.

Fighting for peace is absolutely inane... Peace is holstering your gun and agreeing to disagree

 Perpetual war, $$$$$$$$, controll, and in the end domestic domination. The takedown.
 The charade continues, pay them to attack or to stand down and allow convoy passage, they are all suking blood.
 
 They have the war profiteers in line, suking away, as they knew they would. There exist an element of humans that would eat  raw fetus to insure their power and fortunes.
 They are parasites, soulless skinsacks, we can't afford to underestimate what this tribe of maggots are capable of.
How many have been slaughtered to feed their goals, in Iraq alone over one million, and they are nothing but numbers to these traitors.
  Tht old expression,  without profit there would be no war, has proven valid throughout history.
