Have any of you guys ever looked in to this company and their dealings in Iraq. They are a private security company with government contracts and nearly 2000 (I think) former special forces soldiers in combat roles overseas. I've not yet done enough research to form an opinion on this. It seems that they are doing a good job over there by virtue of being a force made up almost exclusively of individuals with special forces training and combat experiance but why does the American military need their help? The media seems to think that they are there because laws are nearly non-existant or not enforced in Iraq and since these guys are not governed by the Uniform Code of Military Justice they can be used in "less than legal missions". In any case their missions and operational directives are kept closely gaurded so it is unlikely that my research will yield any real answers on why they are there or if their use is even legal. Anyone have any insight in to this?
