Contractors Outnumber U.S. Troops in Iraq

Contractors Outnumber U.S. Troops in Iraq
New figures show U.S. troops are now outnumbered by another force in Iraq: private contractors. According to the Los Angeles Times, there are more than one-hundred-eighty thousand U.S.-paid private contractors in Iraq. That’s more than the number of U.S. troops and civilian government officials combined. Most of the contractors are Iraqis. Twenty-one thousand are Americans and forty-three thousand from other countries. The number is likely higher because not all security contractors were counted in the total.
