U.S. contractors have made billions from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But now, several are being investigated for slave labor.

Operation freedom was based on A GW Bush lie.Weapons of mass destruction and 9/11 were just an excuse for Bush administration to invade two countries and look at the results.G.W.Bush and his gang must be prosecuted and punished for their crimes against humanity.
Noted and signed. Thanks Nancy

as long as any being lives in fear, hate, exploitation and death at the hands of man so shall all men live under this same threat, don't fool yourself no one is free as long as another is oppressed. withdraw your consent for as long as we agree to the small things we have agreed to the big ones, the pebble seems so small but its effects are far reaching
protect life, prosecute those that seek to destroy our shared home and our fellow beings
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

Was wondering if this story was ever going to break. The U.S.
gov't & the Corporate cronies, have been sup[porting slavery of
every kind imaginable for decades funded by ours truly, the American
taxpayer. WHAT if anything anymore do our taxpayer dollars go
to that actually help the American taxpayer. It seems we're being
rear-ended from every direction.

I do not understand why we need private contractors in a war any way. America just fund these private owned companies without checking to see what services they are doing or how their businesses are being ran. Wake up and stop hiring private contractors if these were Government Employees there would be hollering from heaven to hell.

Thank you for standing with Vinnie
With your support, we can pressure the U.S. Congress to end this unacceptable practice.

Does this surprise me NOT in the least but do you really expect for Congress to step up to the plate lol.

Everyone signed that are here but now it is up to Congress to do something TODAY and that is a fact.

Noted and signed. Thanks Nancy. Ever since the US government has used outsourcing to back up our military, starting decades ago, those contractors have been on a slippery slope towards getting away with just about anything. This needs to be brought under control, and those guilty parties need to be brought to justice. Unfortunately, Congress is still stuck on making sure Obama doesn't get a second term, so anything the Democrats want, the Republicans won't. Perhaps if we pressure them enough they will step up, but I'm not holding my breath.
