Blackwater: The Rise of the Most Powerful Mercenary Firm in the World

Recording 25.1 meg 43:57 – temp version

From event listing: Blackwater protects the top US officials in Iraq, yet the public knows almost nothing about their quasi-military operations, which range from the blood-soaked streets of Fallujah to rooftop firefights in Najaf to the hurricane-ravaged US gulf to Washington DC. “Jeremy Scahill’s exposé of the Blackwater mercenary firm forcefully demonstrates the grave dangers of outsourcing the government’s monopoly on the use of force.” – Joseph Wilson, former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq. Recorded at Odyssey Books, South Hadley, MA.
