Blackwater

Seems Blackwater may be getting into the poo.

From a news service I subscribe too.

Federal agents investigating the 16th September episode in which Blackwater security personnel shot and killed 17 Iraqi civilians have found that at least 14 of the shootings were unjustified and violated deadly-force rules in effect for security contractors in Iraq

Im curious to see how much of this will be swept under the carpet. I might be wrong but arent Blackwater different from your average security firm in Iraq, in that its operators all carry US Dept of Defence ID? I might be wrong but that definitely rings a bell.
