Up to 56,000 more contractors likely for Afghanistan, congressional agency says

I know that libs and conservatives alike have a problem with the surge. But, since WWII we have waged war with the intent of "nation building". Contractors build things, so there you go.

From The Washington Post:

The surge of 30,000 U.S. troops into Afghanistan could be accompanied by a surge of up to 56,000 contractors, vastly expanding the presence of personnel from the U.S. private sector in a war zone, according to a study by the Congressional Research Service.
