This investigation revealed that more than 70 American companies and individuals had been awarded up to $8 billion in contracts for work in postwar Iraq and Afghanistan over the past two years, This investigation examined the companies in detail, profiling their backgrounds, campaign contributions, ties to government and past history of contracting. A lot of shady coincidences were uncovered. For example, the top 10 contractors contributed $11 million to national political parties, candidates and political action committees since 1990.
