Private Security Contractors at War

Private Security Contractors at War

Published by Sean
This report examines the dramatically expanded role of private security contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan. It describes the failure of the U.S. government to effectively control their actions, and in particular the inability or unwillingness of the Department of Justice (DoJ) to hold them criminally responsible for their illegal actions.
While some of these contractors have been fired or received other employment sanctions, practically none have been prosecuted for serious misconduct such as violent attacks
against civilians that have resulted in death or serious injuries. Although the primary focus of this report is on private security
contractors (PSCs) (see definition on p. 1 below), we also examine the role of private contractors in the interrogation process, specifically at Abu Ghraib.
