Jonathan K. Idema, Brett Bennett and Edward Caraballo were arrested when Afghan security forces raided a house in Kabul on July 5. American and Afghan officials say they were vigilantes posing as U.S. special forces and had no official backing. Speaking to reporters crowding round the dock, Idema named a Pentagon official who allegedly asked the group to go "under contract" -- an offer they refused.
"The American authorities absolutely condoned what we did, they absolutely supported what we did," he said. --MSNBC

Sound familliar? Funny how your freinds disappear after you get busted. This is what happens when you sub contract jobs to civilians that should be done by trained military personnel. Maybe we're stretched a little too thin.
