Private Contractors and Covert Wars in Latin America

U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) threatened to issue subpoenas against the U.S. Defense and State Departments last month if they continue to refuse to accurately account for billions of dollars spent on private contractors assisting Washington in the 'war on drugs' in Latin America. But McCaskill's concerns raise broader questions about oversight and transparency of a controversial industry and its ever expanding role in Washington's foreign policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "war on drugs" is a farce.

It is about making money for those with close US ties (anyone remember "Iran-Contra"?!?), and shutting down the competition.
