Wartime Contracting Commission finds drinking problem with ArmorGroup

The company was hired to protect the U.S. embassy in Afghanistan, but a new report from the Commission on Wartime Contracting suggests the State Department could have avoided the drama had it not been for the so-called the “lowest price” clause” in federal law. Bob Dickson is the Commission’s executive director, and he joins us live to explain the finding.
