Did you know that 70% of the US intelligence budget is channeled to private corporations?

The privatization is going hand in hand with the expansion of these activities, $60bn+ goes now to the 11 agencies that make up the National Security State. It is said that they also fund themselves through other activities.

Chalmers Johnson at TomDispatch looks at the implication of mercenaries working in areas that give total access and total information: lack of accountability, lack of oversight, and plenty of capacity for corruption of the worst type.

Also, listen to Glenn Greenwald's interview with Tom Shorrock on the same subject.
