Private Contractors: The Tail that Wags the Dog

The Bush White House refuses to take any control for or responsibility of the security contractors on the ground in Iraq. The Washington Post reports today that both the Pentagon and the State Department have basically ignored warnings from defense and legal experts for the last two years who expressed concern for the lack of control over privatization. As you can see from the President's response to a question asked about the subject in the video above, he lacks answers and leadership. Rather than looking like the Commander-in-Chief, he looks beholden to big money interests and war profiteers who want our tax dollars for themselves.
