Description
 
In Iraq and Afghanistan, the use of contractors reached a level unprecedented in U.S. military operations. As of March 31, 2010, the U.S. deployed 175,000 troops and 207,000 contractors in the war zones. Armed and unarmed contractors represented 50% of the Dept. of Defense (DOD) workforce in Iraq and 59% in Afghanistan. The executive branch has conducted numerous investigations into fraud, waste, and corruption in the contracting process. Congress had held hearings and established the Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet the U.S. government has not systematically explored the essential question: Does using contractors in a conflict zone make strategic sense? This study explores that question. It examines the good, the bad, and the strategic impact of using contractors in conflict zones, and concludes with recommendations for future policy and additional actions needed to understand and cope with the rapidly expanding use of armed contractors worldwide. This is a print on demand report.
