No More Private Security Contractors In Afghanistan?

Afghanistan says that in four months all private security Contractors will be shut down.  I do not think there is a "plan" in place that will fill the void, but President Hamid Karzai's statement that contractors will be out by November 2011 is firm.  See the story on Yahoo News

What does this mean?  It may mean an end to a lot of contractor jobs in Afghan, or it may simply be one of these things where they "rename" private security contractors to something else.  There are about 26,000 to 30,000 private security contractors for 37 different companies.

A special thanks to Contractor Jobs on Facebook for posting about this.

More details when I know them.
