Jeremy Scahill - Blackwater: Mercenary Army

$9.99 $14.99

Jeremy Scahill is the author of the bestseller Blackwater: The rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army. He is the recipient of the Polk Award for journalism and a frequent contributor to The Nation magazine and Democracy Now! The explosive story of Blackwater, a company that rose a decade ago from Moyock, North Carolina, to become one of the most powerful players in the war on terror, is told by Scahill on this audio CD. Exposing Blackwater as the frightening new face of the U.S. war machine, the author discusses the topics and research of his bestselling Blackwater book— from the bloodied streets of Iraq to hurricane-ravaged New Orleans and the chambers of power in Washington, D.C.

“According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, 48,000 people currently work for private military companies in Iraq, in other words, mercenary companies. Forty-eight thousand employees. Of those, 20,000-25,000 are believed by senior congressional representatives from the intelligence and oversight committee to be working as armed mercenaries in Iraq. So we have at least 20,000-25,000 armed mercenaries and no effective system of oversight, no effective system of accountability, no effective laws being applied against them.” —Jeremy Scahill, excerpt from the recording

“Scahill is a one-man truth squad.”— Bill Moyers
