Op-Ed on Military Privatization

Based on my research on landmine clearance contracting, I wrote an editorial in The Examiner (Independence, MO) this weekend on the risks of military privatization in Afghanistan. It focuses on hearings in the Subcommittee on Contracting Oversight of the US Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, chaired by my senator, Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.).

McCaskill has also led investigations into the allegations of misconduct by ArmorGroup (now part of G4S), a security and demining contractor, in Afghanistan. For more information on my research into commercial demining contracting, click here.
