During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".Who Links Here

Frontline: Private Warriors
Companion Web site to the PBS Frontline special of the same name. Site looks at
private contractors like Blackwater, Aegis and Erinys, who play an increasingly
critical role in running U.S. military supply lines, providing armed protection,
and operating U.S. military bases. These private warriors are targeted by
insurgents and in turn have been criticized for their rough treatment of Iraqi
civilians. Their dramatic story illuminates the Pentagon's new reliance on
corporate outsourcing and raises tough questions about where they fit in the
chain of command and the price we are paying for their role in the war.
