Blackwater : the rise of the world's most powerful mercenary army by Jeremy Scahill( Book )

43 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this exposé by radical journalist Scahill, you will meet BLACKWATER USA, the world's most secretive and powerful mercenary firm. Based in the wilderness of North Carolina, it is the fastest-growing private army on the planet, with forces capable of carrying out regime change throughout the world. Blackwater protects the top US officials in Iraq, and yet we know almost nothing about the firm's quasi-military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and inside the US. Blackwater was founded by an extreme right-wing fundamentalist Christian mega-millionaire ex-Navy Seal named Erik Prince, the scion of a wealthy conservative family that bankrolls far-right-wing causes. This book is the dark story of the rise of a powerful mercenary army, ranging from the blood-soaked streets of Fallujah to rooftop firefights in Najaf to the hurricane-ravaged US Gulf to Washington DC, where Blackwater executives are hailed as new heroes in the war on terror.--From publisher description

Funded through "black budgets", Special Operations Forces conduct missions in denied areas, engage in targeted killings, snatch and grab individuals and direct drone, AC-130 cruise missile strikes. While the Bush administration deployed these ghost militias, President Obama has expanded their operations and given them new scope and legitimacy. This book follows the consequences of the declaraion that "the world is a battlefield", as the author uncovers this important foreign policy story.

Blackwater : the rise of the world's most powerful mercenary army by Jeremy Scahill( )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A largely untold facet of the war on terror is the widespread outsourcing of military tasks to private mercenary companies. Accountable neither to the citizenry nor to standard military legal codes, these largely unregulated corporate armies are being entrusted with ever-greater responsibilities on behalf of the nation. Meet Blackwater USA, the world's most secretive, powerful, and fastest growing private army on the planet. Founded by fundamentalist Christian megamillionaire Erik Prince, the scion of a conservative dynasty that bankrolls extreme-right-wing causes, this company of soldiers is now being sent "to the front lines of a global battle, waged largely on Muslim lands, that an evangelical President whom Prince helped put in the White House has boldly defined as a 'crusade'." Ranging from the blood-soaked streets of Fallujah to Washington, D.C., where they are hailed as heroes, this is the dark story of Blackwater's rise to power
The assassination complex : inside the government's secret drone warfare program by Jeremy Scahill( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the US government discusses drone strikes publicly, it offers assurances that such operations are a more precise alternative to troops on the ground, but the implicit message from the administration has been trust, but don't verify. The online magazine The Intercept obtained a cache of secret slides that provide a window into the inner workings of the US military’s kill/capture operations in Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia, and show assassination to be central to US counterterrorism policy. This campaign, carried out by two presidents through four presidential terms, has been deliberately obscured from the public-- until now

Tom Engelhardt created and runs the TomDispatch.com website, self-described as being "for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of our post-9/11 world and a clear sense of how our imperial globe actually works." In his recent book, The American Way of War: How Bus''s Wars Became Obama's, Engelhardt documents Washington's ongoing commitment to military bases to preserve, and extend, its empire; reveals damning information about the American reliance on airpower, at great cost to civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan; and shows that the U.S. empire has deep historical roots that precede the George W. Bush administration--and continue today into the presidency of Barack Obama. He is the author of a highly praised history of American triumphalism in the Cold War, The End of Victory Culture, and of a novel, The Last Days of Publishing, as well as a collection of his TomDispatch interviews, Mission Unaccomplished.
