The London Observer reported this weekend that the US multinational corporation DynCorp has won a multi-million dollar contract to police Iraq. DynCorp began recruiting for a private police force last week.
But the corporation faces accusations of human rights violations around the world.
A British tribunal recently forced Dyncorp to pay compensation to an employee who blew the whistle on colleagues involved in a sex ring in Bosnia- where the company was policing.
Ecuadorians have filed a class action law suit against the company for spraying herbicides that killed legitimate crops, caused illness and killed children.
Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney spoke last week about DynCorp as well as the various costs of war at an event hosted by PeaceAction in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
