The soul-sickening sound of Blackwater USA guns will hopefully end soon. Digby has another take on it and Robert Greenwald of Brave New Films made another fabulous documentary on Blackwater's "Shadow War" called Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers
The Blackwater/private contractor fiasco is a story that has barely cracked the headlines in the MSM, but is arguably one of the most important features of BushCo's strategy to undermine our democracy. The possibility exists that Blackwater is the private BushCo army created to keep us peaceniks in line. This is a chapter of American history I wish to soon be over.
