DynCorp and The Whistleblower

Well, the ex- DynCorp employee Kathryn Bolkovac is back in the news.  There is a movie about her called "The Whistleblower"  This is not the same as the one starring Michael Cain.  It is about when she worked for "a corporation" which is not named, at least in the promos.

Rachel Weisz in WhistleblowerA bit about the movie:

"Based on the true story of Kathryn Bolkovac, who traveled to Bosnia in 1999 as a U.N. peacekeeper, Whistleblower chronicles the trials of a female cop (Weisz) from Nebraska who serves as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and exposes a United Nations cover-up of a sex trafficking scandal. Weisz will obviously be playing the female cop.Plot: Kathryn Bolkovac is a Nebraska cop who is thrust into the gravelly snake pit of UN regulated Bosnia. She works as part of a private corporate army, training Bosnian police to restore order to the war-torn country. As she begins to get the lay of the land in her new environment, she starts to see signs of a terrible underground industry whose patrons are not only from within the corporation but from within the United Nations as well."

I know it doesn't say DynCorp - but we know it is.

A bit of the true story part can be found here

It is not a good thing for DynCorp.  Now I have nothing against DynCorp myself.  I have worked for them before and would again if the situation was right.

Tell me your thoughts about this.
