More Edwards and Contracting

Here’s the AP’s coverage of John Edwards’ forthcoming policy proposals on contractors in Iraq. Sources in the campaign have been able to clear up some of the ambiguity associated with the very brief summary I wrote up this morning, and the intention, as I hopes, is to build not only enhanced accountability measures into the contracting process but to limit the scope of the military’s reliance on contractors to scenarios where it’s really necessary.

That seems like the right balance to me.
