Blackwater, Torture, Death Squads - They Do It All

... the Associated Press learned that the FBI is sending a team to Iraq to investigate an incident that has angered the Iraqi government. On Sept. 16, 11 Iraqis were killed in a shootout involving Blackwater guards protecting a U.S. diplomatic convoy in Baghdad. Blackwater says its guards acted in self-defense after the convoy came under attack. Iraqi witnesses have said the shooting was unprovoked. The FBI team was sent at the request of the State Department, and its findings will be reviewed for possible criminal liability. The 122 security personnel terminated by Blackwater is roughly one-seventh of the work force that the company has in Iraq, a ratio that raises questions about the quality of the people working for the company. The only punishment for those dismissed was termination of their contracts with Blackwater, says the report, which uses information from Blackwater's files and State Department records. The report, prepared by the majority staff of the committee, also says Blackwater has been involved in 195 shooting incidents since 2005, or roughly 1.4 per week.

After Fallujah: The Truth About the Blackwater Mercenaries Blackwater USA describes itself as a private military company and security firm. Founded in 1997 by Erik Prince, it is based in North Carolina. The company describes itself as a "military, law enforcement, security, peacekeeping, and stability operations company”. Critics claim Blackwater's private military company self-description is a politically-correct euphemism for mercenary activities.

Blackwater's Mercenary Jackpot Government records recently obtained by The Nation reveal that the Bush Administration has paid Blackwater more than $320 million since June 2004 to provide "diplomatic security" services globally. The massive contract is the largest known to have been awarded to Blackwater to date and reveals how the Administration has elevated a once-fledgling security firm into a major profiteer in the "war on terror”. Blackwater's highly lucrative "diplomatic security" contract was officially awarded under the State Department's little-known Worldwide Personal Protective Service (WPPS) program, described in State Department documents as a government initiative to protect US officials as well as "certain foreign government high level officials whenever the need arises." The WPPS contract awarded in 2004 was divided among a handful of companies, among them DynCorp and Triple Canopy. Blackwater was originally slated to be paid $229.5 million for five years, according to a State Department contract list. Yet as of June 30, just two years into the program, it had been paid a total of $321,715,794. When confronted with this apparent $100 million discrepancy, the State Department could not readily explain it. Blackwater's two years of WPPS earnings exceed many estimates of the company's total government contracts, which the Virginian-Pilot recently put at $290 million combined since 2000. Six years ago the government paid Blackwater less than $250,000.

Bush Torture, Inc We should never lose sight of one simple fact: Deep down, these guys are nothing but cheap hoods, two-bit chiselers hustling for loot, thug-brained goons with no more grandeur about them than the meanest pack of Mafia knee-breakers. Two recent stories, both obscured by the blood and thunder of the Iraqi crack-up, illustrate this ugly truth.

The USA uses private contractors worldwide to torture, spy, interfere, and to train death squads within each country they invade - who in turn create civil unrest to distract from the ongoing American attack (on their natural resources) from the outside. Heck from El Salvadore to Chile to Iraq the American death squad imprint of the School of Americas is all over the Bush family. Clearly the CIA was not infiltrated well enough for complete control and protection of the treason in office, thus a private army that supersedes the secret service of the country is protecting this Bush league gang of greed.
