In the News: Ann Hagedorn quoted in New York Times today

Ann Hagedorn was quoted in The New York Times article “Blackwater’s Legacy Goes Beyond Public View”. Hagedorn says she believes private military and security contractors, like those Blackwater guards found guilty of murder and manslaughter for their actions in Nisour Square, the will continue to have plenty of work in America’s defense strategy overseas.

‘“Iraq has been called the first contractors’ war,” she said. “With an increasing dependence on these companies worldwide, we could easily be going into another contingency operation that will be another contractors’ war.”’
