Blackwater: The Rise of the Worlds Most Powerful Mercenary Army [Revised and Updated] by Jeremy Scahill

* Winner of the George Polk Book Award * Alternet Best Book of the Year * Barnes & Noble one of the Best Nonfiction Books of 2007 * Amazon one of the Best Nonfiction Books of 2007 Meet Blackwater USA, the worlds most secretive and powerful mercenary firm. Based in the wilderness of North Carolina, it is the fastest-growing private army on the planet, with forces capable of carrying out regime change throughout the world. Blackwater protects the top U.S. officials in Iraq and yet the world knows almost nothing about the firms quasi-military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and inside the United States. This is the dark story of the rise of a powerful mercenary army, ranging from the blood-soaked streets of Fallujah to rooftop firefights in Najaf to the hurricane-ravaged U.S. Gulf Coast to Washington D.C., where Blackwater executives are hailed as new heroes in the war on terror.
