Money talks. Money makes people think and act in different, in weird, ways.

Tim Shorrock, investigative journalist and author,

Shorrock has been a contributor to The Nation since 1983, and has written for The Daily Beast , Mother Jones , The Progressive , the think-tank Foreign Policy in Focus , and Asia Times .

Speaking to Empire about the private contractors who spy for the government, Shorrock discussed Shamrock, the murky, moneyed “revolving door” of government intelligence and private contractors, and how our secrets are in the hands of outsourced companies.
