Working in Iraq
01 Jan 2006
Contractors, Marcenaries, Private soldiers -- whatever you call them... they are working in Iraq
Just like you work for a company like IBM
Or any other corporation in the world,

"Is that corporation doing a service or disservice to society...
And if you believe they're doing a disservice,
And you still work for them, what does that make you!?"

A post I saw on their Message Board

"May, Im sure you wont get the truth which is they were arrested by Polish soldiers for being very drunk and violent. The second major problem you have is, why is it the Army have CDT's? Im sure you can think of a dozen reasons right now. Shouldnt Aegis be having CDT's aswell for the exact same reasons, drugs is becoming a problem in Iraq especially performance enhancing drugs...."

Mr Spicer's Thoughts about this site
(Lieutenant Colonel Tim Spicer, OBE)
http://www.aegisiraq.co.uk/Home.htm

"My major concern is one of OPSEC - either that of our clients or our own individuals - posting unblanked photos may not be so clever. Anything that is of use to AIF should not be allowed to flourish.

I am also concerned about media interest in this site and I remind everyone of their contractual obligation not to speak to or assist the media without clearing it with the project management or Aegis London. This site could be construed in this way."
