Need Work? - Open a Body Shop

In a country with about 10% unemployment & cities & states trying desperately to make do with aging infrastructures, people are wondering where the money is. The Federal Government is racking up record deficits for years and we know about the bailouts for the wealthy. We know about our military bases around the world that could probably be eliminated in a day's worth of nuclear strikes. But waht about our shadow war?
The Washington Post follows the money.
Surprise. Since 9/12/01 gushers of money have been flowing into the intelligence arm of the "military - industrial complex". Only, more and more, our military is relying on outside services. That is, the people dedicating their lives to serving their country for a pittance are being backed up more and more by folks who are just trying to make as much money as possible as quickly as possible.
It's not pretty and the prospect of these businesses, that are increasingly following us domestically, selling themselves to foreign nationals is downright scary.
