Iraqi Death Squad Militia of the Day
SEPTEMBER 27, 2007
Blackwater is one of a number of private companies working for the US in Iraq. They handle security detail with particular, er, zeal. They are not accountable to Iraqis nor the US military. So when piles of bodies get higher and the list of witnesses to random and senseless killings grows, Iraqi officials call for the expulsion of the company. But, it seems, it doesn’t matter. The only one whose decision seems to matter is “The Decider”. Mr. “Childrens-Do-Learn”. So we carry on with all this, giving the world and Iraq more reasons to love us.
Seems like rivers of blood, seen through the filter of green, would look a lot like . . . Blackwater.
“They’re repeat offenders, and yet they continue to prosper in Iraq,” aid Rep. Jan Schakowsky. “These guys represent the US to (Iraqis) and there are no rules of the game for them.”
