"Betraying Our Troops is a powerful, searing exposé about how America has substantially outsourced its war in Iraq, and the dire consequences of privatization to our troops, not to mention government efficiency and accountability. This is a sad tale of greed, arrogance, and cronyism run amok, from two very savvy Pentagon watchdogs who have devoted their respective careers to tracking defense contracting fraud. It will outrage and offend your sense of morality." --Charles Lewis, founder of the Center for Public Integrity, Washington, D.C.
"This book is a must-read for everyone concerned about the impact of private contractors on this nation's ability to win wars and secure the peace." --Lawrence Korb, former Assistant Secretary of Defense
"Dina Rasor and Robert Bauman combine damning evidence with gripping stories from soldiers to show how crooks working for private contractors undercut our military and the war effort. This is an essential document of one of the more shameful episodes in American military history." --John Pike, Director, Globalsecurity.org --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
