IN-DEPTH RESEARCH INTO THE VAST BUSINESS EMPIRE FUNDING BRUTALITY AND GENOCIDE
Our research sheds light on transactions and relationships the military would prefer stay hidden
We examine the trends, investments and legal ties of the military's various business assets as described in public and private documents and news reporting across a number of languages. Much of the evidence of the military's conflict of interest and wrongdoing are out in the open, seeking only to have curious and thoughtful researchers connect the dots in a cohesive way.
