This review is from: War on Terror, Inc: Corporate Profiteering from the Politics of Fear (Hardcover)
Picks apart the links between British and American politicians and the new private military industry Its filled with the bad behaviour of the new "security firms", from Apartheid killers hired to carry guns in Iraq to private police covering up prostitution rackets in the Balkans. A serious analysis of the new military companies, showing how UK firms and US were central in the drive to war in Iraq. Also filled with surprising details you won't find elsewhere like: -

- Dick Cheney came to Oxford to plan privatising the
battlefield with Labour ministers and officials in 2000.
- A British mercenary firm running Baghdad Airport closed down
plane flights into Iraq until they got a bigger share of Iraq's oil cash.
- David Cameron's Foreign Affairs spokesman works for a firm that
made millions out of shoddy army housing.
- The database firms hiring British politicians and officials to
Push through the Identity Card
"War on Terror inc." shows how American and British firms are helping drive the new security agenda.
