Information Session on Military Contractors
(29 September 2009)
Hannah Mercuris, our energetic former president, gives us all the latest info on private military contractors. (Franscesca, pay attention!) Did you know that:
The security contractor Blackwater killed seventeen civilians in the infamous Nissour Square massacre
The security contractor KBR has been accused of distributing contaminated food to our troops
A KBR employee who was gang-raped, Jamie Leigh Jones, was unable under her contract to press charges in court.
The audience appears to be listening in rapt attention...or staring into space? It's hard to tell. Let's go with rapt attention.
