The series identified hundreds of military recurited or retained during the Iraq war with criminal records and other questionable backgrounds. At least 70 were linked to incidents in the military, most involving crimes against civilians or other misconduct in Iraq. Some of the incidents had been well-publicized, although the backgrounds of accused personnel had not previously been disclosed, and others incidents were made public for the first time through never-before released records obtained by The Bee.
