U.S. mulls (even larger) private army for Afghanistan

Great. The U.S. military is considering hiring even more private security contractors in Afghanistan:

The U.S. military is mulling a plan to build a private army to protect bases throughout Afghanistan. On July 10, the Army issued a request for information from companies interested in bidding on an Afghanistan-wide security contract. While a formal solicitation has not been launched, the idea would be to provide security services for approximately 50 or more forward operating bases or command outposts throughout Afghanistan.
