That is because the contractors were CHOSEN BY THE GOVERNMENT. This isn't exactly a privatized military. And there is a difference between the government being in bed with certain contractors vs. a more separate entity such as Allstate insurance or State Farm.

In your example, it was a contractor + a government crony seeking to profit at the expense of soldiers that had no say in the relationship. It's a double-profit for two corporations with the "clients" having ZERO say. If I don't like Allstate, I got to BCBS or United Healthcare, etc. Yes, there are cronies in their boardrooms, but I have a choice, and one company profits for the services.

I happen to know personally of a chain of restaurants that is run by pure evil. I choose not to eat there.
