Blackwater Founder's 'Disturbing' Plan to Privatize Afghan War Gains Ground

Blackwater Founder's 'Disturbing' Plan to Privatize Afghan War Gains Ground | Common Dreams
According to a report by Katrina Manson of the Financial Times on Monday, Prince has drafted a proposal—dated August 2017—that would hand the longest war in American history over to a private "band of experienced sergeants," who would fight alongside U.S.-trained Afghan forces.
Prince, Manson writes, "proposes a two-year plan for fewer than 5,000 global guns for hire and under 100 aircraft, bringing the total cost of the U.S. effort to turn round a failing war to less than $10 billion a year."
