Betraying Our Troops with Dina Rasor and Robert Bauman.
In "Betraying Our Troops," Dina Rasor and her colleague Robert Bauman disclose the ways in which private contractors have achieved previously unheard of income levels while threatening the welfare of countless American soldiers. Using the experiences of individual troops and contractor employees, the book details the shameful war profiteering of well-known companies and brings the reader to understand the real dangers this has posed to the effectiveness of our fighting forces.
"Betraying Our Troops" takes the stories of military families buying bulletproof vests for their loved ones and tales of improperly outfitted military convoys to the next level, exposing the extent to which the government is at the mercy of these private contractors and the billions of dollars being wasted in Iraq. Rasor and Bauman help illustrate how money and power have conspired to undermine our fighting forces and threaten our country's security- Cody's Book
