What’s a little suprising is that the army corp doesn’t rely on soldiers for protection; they’ve outsourced the job. The security company, the army corp hired, is not even American. The company, Arenas was founded by ex-members of British Special Forces and hires an assortment of ex-soldiers and retired policemen from South Africa, America, England, and Russia. FRONTLINE returns to Iraq, this time to embed with Halliburton/KBR, and to take a hard look at private contractors who play a critical role in running U.S. military supply lines, providing armed protection and operating U.S. military bases.

Their dramatic story illuminates the Pentagon’s new reliance on corporate outsourcing and raises questions about where they fit in the chain of command and the price we are paying for their role in the war. If copyright becomes an issue on this video upload, it will be deleted immediately.
