Online Action Center - Investigate and prosecute military contractors who torture

The United States government is outsourcing key security and military support functions to private companies, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan. Government reports have implicated these private contractors in serious human rights violations – including participation by contractors in the torture at Abu Ghraib [Titan (now L-3 Titan, part of L-3 Communications), CACI]- yet only one civilian contractor has faced charges. Tell the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute all cases of human rights violations committed by employees or contractors of private military companies.

Part of the following timelines
