Overview

In this shocking exposé, two government fraud experts reveal how private contractors have put the lives of countless American soldiers on the line while damaging our strategic interests and our image abroad. From the shameful war profiteering of companies like Halliburton/KBR to the sinister influence that corporate lobbyists have on American foreign policy, Dina Rasor and Robert H. Bauman paint a disturbing picture. Here they give the inside story on troops forced to subsist on little food and contaminated water, on officers afraid to lodge complaints because of Halliburton's political clout, on millions of dollars in contractors' bogus claims that are funded by American taxpayers. Drawing on exclusive sources within government and the military, the authors show how money and power have conspired to undermine our fighting forces and threaten the security of our country.

Meet the Author

Dina Rasor is an investigative journalist who founded and ran the Project on Government Oversight, the organization that was responsible for exposing much of the weapons fraud in the 1980s and 1990s, especially for weapons that failed testing and overpriced spare parts. She is now the chief investigator for Follow the Money (www.followthemoneyproject.org), a project that investigates where the money appropriated for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars is going--especially money that should be going to the troops. She lives in El Cerrito, California. Robert Bauman was a criminal investigator with the Department of Defense for 24 years. He lives in San Jose, California. The authors are Principals in the Bauman & Rasor Group, an investigative and consulting firm specializing in lawsuits involving government fraud.
