This seven-day series and the follow-ups shed light on the world of private military contractors. The series chronicles the events leading up to the ambush of four private military contractors in Fallujah who were working for a North Carolina company. The investigation exposes the problems private military contractors create for the military, the cost to taxpayers and their lack of public accountability. They derive their revenue from tax dollars yet exist in a kind of "legal netherworld" between civil and military law.
