The State Department has announced it is extending the private military firm Blackwater’s contract in Baghdad for another year. The news comes despite an ongoing FBI investigation into the September 16th shooting in Baghdad where Blackwater guards were accused of killing seventeen Iraqi civilians. An earlier investigation by the Pentagon found that all seventeen Iraqis were killed as a result of unprovoked and unjustified fire by Blackwater operatives.
Of course, the actual Iraqi government tried to expel the unaccountable mercenary Blackwater from their nation, but why should their "liberators" start caring about what Iraqis want at this late date, after all? Freedom, as Dear Leader likes to say, is on the march!
