Blackwater Era ends in Iraq

Excuse me while I digress for a moment…

The State Department’s contract with Blackwater for security services in Iraq ends today. This much maligned company undeservedly got bashed by the press and members of Congress. Let the record show that not a single person under the guard of Blackwater was killed or even seriously injured during their service in Iraq. That is equally indisputable and unfathomable fact. For over 5 years of service, not a single casualty. In an environment where 1000’s were killed and each of those they protected carried a target on their head, that is unbelieveable. But the Iraq government and the uninformed who call them “mercenaries” have finally gotten their wish. As they say, be careful what you ask for.
