What's Behind the Attacks on the RCP and What's at Stake

a repost from the Revolutionary Worker | Since the fall of 2001, over 50 similar articles have appeared in different newspapers, magazines, and web sites, all offering various fabricated "exposures" of how communists, supposedly in the pay of foreign terrorist organizations, are behind the mass opposition to Bush's war program.

Some are written by people with close ties to the government and contain information (however distorted it is presented) that appears to come from government files. more...  15 Comments

Military Contractor CACI International Fingered in Abu Ghraib Torture

IMC / AK Gupta | As outrage spreads over the treatment of Iraq prioners in Abu Ghraib, the New York Times has identified employees of Arlington based CACI International as lead perpetrators in the abuse.

According to the Times, "The Taguba report states that ... one civilian interrogator, a contractor from a company called CACI International Inc., based in Arlington, Va., and attached to the 205th Military Intelligence Brigade, 'clearly knew his instructions' to the military police equated to physical abuse ... The report identifies" Steven Stephanowicz and John Israel "as the people suspected of being 'either directly or indirectly responsible for the abuses at Abu Ghraib.'"

The role of independent contractors in the torture at Abu Ghraib is only one of questions surrounding the behavior of mercenaries in Iraq. In the most recent Indypendent, AK Gupta takes a look [1 || 2] at military contractors during the latest war.
