  1. From generals to privates, America’s wars are understood as “good guys” vs. “bad guys”. Ignorance is profound throughout our culture. There is no other issue, war in 2014 national election and how this war on terror began and continues

  2. Welcome to the United States of Contracts’ Department of Domination. I’ve listed notable totals below(totals above 100 million and not including joint ventures/programs). If you haven’t read this entire distillation, I strongly recommend it, and when doing so, as Mr. Sorensen notes, pay close attention to two things: the non-competitive bidding and destination of the money/product/service. Very interesting.
