The explosive story of Blackwater, a company that rose a decade ago from Moyock, North Carolina, to become one of the most powerful players in the war on terror, is told on this audio CD. Exposing Blackwater as the frightening new face of the U.S. war machine, the author discusses the topics and research of his bestselling Blackwater book—from the bloodied streets of Iraq to hurricane-ravaged New Orleans and the chambers of power in Washington, DC.
