Mr. Chatterjee talked about his book Iraq, Inc: A Profitable Occupation, published by Seven Stories Press. In the book he contended that private contractors had and still stood to benefit the most from the war in Iraq. Mr. Chatterjee documented operations of government contractors such as Bechtel, Blackwater, DynCorp, and Halliburton in Iraq, as well as interviews with Iraqi citizens, politicians and American whistle-blowers from within the contracting firms. The book also chronicled a lack of proper military training for the civilian contractors and managerial and logistical problems between those contractors and the military. After his presentation he responded to questions from members of the audience. close
