Incentivization Par Excellence

From Tom Ricks's Inbox:

By now, anyone paying attention knows that one of the unusual characteristics of the Iraq war is the U.S. military's heavy reliance on contractors, who really are the second largest contributor to the coalition that remains there. But even I was surprised by this eye-popping salary for an intelligence analyst -- even to work in a rough neighborhood. The handsomely paid analysts should be starting their new jobs right about now.
