Reports today indicate that the Blackwater mercenary killers were given immunity for their testimony by Condi Rice's State Department. What a fantastic message to send to our Iraqi friends: "We care about you and your welfare so much that our U.S. government hired mercenaries can kill you with impunity."
This will surely win the hearts and minds of our liberated Iraqi friends.
The Iraqi prime minister demanded the removal of Blackwater from his country immediately after the September 16th massacre, with the responsible individuals to remain to face prosecution. Blackwater still remains in Iraq, and now it looks as if no one will be held accountable from Blackwater for the mass killings, even though the Iraq government and the U.S. military have determined the Blackwater mercenaries started the shooting.
What will happen next?
