Rivka posted more information this morning on the Abu Ghraib situation. I don’t remember hearing a damned thing about DynCorp’s employees purchasing girls (as young as 12) and women in Bosnia to use as sex slaves. I wasn’t reading blogs at the time, so that’s probably why. (And that’s a pretty stark example of why depending on the mainstream news just isn’t enough).
patgreene cited legal code about torture that makes it very clear that military contractors CAN be prosecuted for the torture at Abu Ghraib.
