7:00 pm Book: Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary, w/Jeremy Scahill & Giulian Sgrena
at Busboys and Poets (in the Langston Room), 2021 14th Street NW
Author Jeremy Scahill will discuss and sign his new book, Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army.
In Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army, Jeremy Scahill discusses Blackwater USA, the powerful private army that the U.S. government has quietly hired to operate in international war zones and on American soil. With its own military base, a fleet of twenty aircraft, and twenty thousand troops at the ready, Blackwater is the elite Praetorian Guard for the “global war on terror”. This is the unauthorized story of the epic rise of one of the most powerful and secretive forces to emerge from the U.S. military-industrial complex. The administration hails Blackwater as a revolution in military affairs; others see its rise as nothing less than a dire threat to American democracy.
