Do stop outsourcing security

This petition had 158 supporters


The theft of the US taxpayer called military contracting, is out of control.  Contractors far outnumber the US military in Afghanistan. Jurisdiction over civilian contractors remains murky, making it difficult to punish contractors who commit crimes.  Despite allegations of human rights abuses at the hands of private military contractors, former Iraqi detainees who have been tortured or abused have not yet had their day in court.  In addition, poor oversight of contractors is causing fiscal hemorrhaging.  Please, support the "Stop Outsourcing Security" legislation that Rep. Jan Schakowsky, (IL), will soon introduce in the House and the companion bill Sen. Bernie Sanders, (VT), will introduce in the Senate, now.
