Karzai Bans Private Security Contractors

It took him long enough. He did it for the reason that “private security contractors undermine the integrity of the Afghan security forces”.

I’m not sure if I would do it for that reason. I’d ban private security contractors because a) there is a long and well-documented list of them using violent force against unarmed civilians in both Afghanistan and Iraq; b) there is no oversight whatsoever; and c) ethical issues – you have hired guns running around shooting at people.

But at least it’s finally been done.
