More on the 100,000 Iraq contractors

I mentioned the WP story earlier this week that said that "the number of contractors (not counting subcontractors) working in Iraq is getting closer to the size of the American military force there."

He also has a Web site where people can go to see the jobs available in Iraq and another site called DangerZoneJobs.com.
