This bill provides the Terrorists with another weapon to use against the USA. The end result will be billions in frivolous costs associated with investigations and lawsuits. Every insurgent, enemy combatant, or Terrorist will have an attorney. The Private sector personnel will quit in droves due to the monetary and legal liabilities. The loss of life due to timidity under fire will be staggering. Convoys and logistics will screech to a halt. VIP's will be dropping like flies. The military will lack sufficient supplies to engage the enemy. Way to go guys; you just surrendered the war on terror.

The military has a Uniform Code of Military Justice for a reason. To break that code is to severely undermine the stated mission of the military. These contractors have been given carte blanche to do anything they desire regardless of the law and it has done irreconsilable damage to the stated mission in Iraq and Afghanistan. Anybody who dare say that we allow over a hundred thousand men and women run around doing anything and everything that could possibly cross their minds in the 110 degree weather without any restrictions or accountability whatsoever is putting our military in unnecessary danger. This is terrorism, it's a serious issue that must be dealt with in an orderly fashiojn, otherwise your just helping the terrorists.

For too long, contractors have been subject to absolutely no laws when deployed overseas and this bill actually makes them accountable for their actions. The two idiots who made comments should actually pull up the bill and read what it does instead of taking conservative commentators seriously. Fools.
