The New Yorker har en mycket lång och detaljerad essä om USAs privatiserade krig i Afghanistan och hur detta skapat enorma vinster för de företag som anlitades:

_America’s war in Afghanistan, which is now in its fifteenth year, presents a mystery: how could so much money, power, and good will have achieved so little? Congress has appropriated almost eight hundred billion dollars for military operations in Afghanistan; a hundred and thirteen billion has gone to reconstruction, more than was spent on the Marshall Plan, in postwar Europe. _
