Blackwater Given Immunity

Goddamnit! This has me absolutely seething.

It's not enough that Blackwater can slaughter Iraqis at will, now there's this little tidbit someone forgot to mention.
The State Department promised Blackwater USA bodyguards immunity from prosecution in its investigation of last month's deadly shooting of 17 Iraqi civilians, The Associated Press has learned.


Three senior law enforcement officials said all the Blackwater bodyguards involved — both in the vehicle convoy and in at least two helicopters above — were given the legal protection as investigators from the Bureau of Diplomatic Security sought to find out what happened. The bureau is an arm of the State Department.

No, I have some news for you here, fellas.....
The law enforcement and State Department officials agreed to speak only if they could remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the inquiry into the incident.

Oh, no - it's not for reason of "the sensitivity of the inquiry" that you want to remain anonymous, it's because someone - and maybe more than one someones - will want to kick your ass.

In a recent interview with Lara Logan, Erik Prince said they (Blackwater) are Americans working for America. No they're not. These are traitorous, red-necked, murderous thugs. They are mercenaries as intent on destroying America as is the Bush administration.
