Nick Turse is the associate editor of TomDispatch.com. An award-winning journalist, his work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, the Nation, and regularly at TomDispatch.

This piece is the latest article in his new series on the changing face of American empire, which is being underwritten by Lannan Foundation.
