thrill kills reduxIn a recent post, I mentioned the possibility that private security contractors in Iraq were engaged in recreational killing. Here's another story, from February of this year, about contractors who say that their colleagues engaged in random brutality for the sake of pleasure: "In an exclusive interview, four former security contractors told NBC News that they watched as innocent Iraqi civilians were fired upon, and one crushed by a truck."
Here, too, are some new allegations about contractor-involved thrill kills, from a source that I know nothing about and may or may not be credible.
My sense is that at least some of these stories will surely turn out to be true. The question is, what then? But I do hope that this behavior is on someone's radar, way up above my pay grade.
