Blackwater Watch

The notorious military contractor, Blackwater USA, trains private security forces in Moyock, North Carolina. These hired gunmen deploy in regions arbitrarily partitioned beyond the rule of law – places such as Iraq and New Orleans – posing a menace to citizen control of the U.S. military. Yet, while these soldiers of fortune operate heedless of civil or military codes, the company’s lawyers shield its soaring profits behind outrageous claims to wartime immunity.

Join Blackwater Watch for an evening with Jeremy Scahill author of the New York Times bestseller, Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army
