Notes:
"Since the launch of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars the US military has struggled to recruit troops. Kennard believes that the military has opened its doors to neo-Nazis, white supremacists, gang members, criminals of all stripes, the overweight, and the mentally ill. He provides interviews with extremist veterans and leaders of far-right hate groups who spoke openly of their eagerness to have their followers acquire military training for a coming domestic race war. This book is a stark warning about potential dangers facing Americans from their own soldiers."--Dust jacket.

Description:
A report commissioned by the Department of Defense itself put it, "Effectively, the military has a "don't ask, don't tell" policy pertaining to extremism." Irregular Army connects some of the War on Terror's worst crimes to this opening up of the US military.
The other "don't ask, don't tell" -- Sick, addicted, and forsaken -- Plump, young, dumb, and ready to serve -- Outsiders -- Epilogue : indiscriminate trust.
