One tribesman bluntly told her (Hilary Clinton): "Your presence in the region is not good for peace."

"We are fighting a war that is imposed on us. It's not our war. It is your war," journalist Asma Shirazi told Clinton during the women's meeting. "You had one 9-11. We are having daily 9-11s in Pakistan."

Blackwater and the Khost Bombing: Is the CIA Deceiving Congress? By Jeremy Scahill at The Nation January 6, 2010

A leading member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has told The Nation that she will launch an investigation into why two Blackwater contractors were among the dead in the December 30 suicide bombing at the CIA station at Forward Operating Base Chapman in Khost, Afghanistan. "The Intelligence Committees and the public were led to believe that the CIA was phasing out its contracts with Blackwater and now we find out that there is this ongoing presence," said Illinois Democrat Jan Schakowsky, chair of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, in an interview. "Is the CIA once again deceiving us about the relationship with Blackwater?"

In December, the CIA announced that the agency had canceled its contract with Blackwater to work on the agency's drone bombing campaign in Afghanistan and Pakistan and said Director Leon Panetta ordered a review of all existing CIA contracts with Blackwater. "At this time, Blackwater is not involved in any CIA operations other than in a security or support role," CIA spokesman George Little said December 11.

But Schakowsky said the fact that two Blackwater personnel were in such close proximity to the December 30 suicide bomber--an alleged double agent, who was reportedly meeting with CIA agents including the agency's second-ranking officer in Afghanistan when he blew himself up--shows how "deeply enmeshed" Blackwater remains in sensitive CIA operations, including those CIA officials claim it no longer participates in, such as intelligence gathering and briefings with valuable agency assets. The two Blackwater men were reportedly in the room for the expected briefing by the double agent, Humam Khalil Muhammed Abu Mulal al-Balawi, who claimed to have recently met with Al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri.

"It's just astonishing that given the track record of Blackwater, which is a repeat offender endangering our mission repeatedly, endangering the lives of our military and costing the lives of innocent civilians, that there would be any relationship," Schakowsky said. "That we would continue to contract with them or any of Blackwater's subsidiaries is completely unacceptable."

If US cannot go ahead with prosecution then the accused should be handed over to Iraqi authorities or the International Criminal Court of Justice

Blackwater Verdict a U.S. 'Snub' of Iraqi Leader Nouri al-Maliki

Is the decision by a U.S. federal court to drop charges against five former guards of the private security firm Blackwater a way for Washington to remind Nouri al-Maliki of the 'absoluteness of U.S. control in Iraq'? That is the thesis of this latest article from Iran's state-controlled Kayhan newspaper.

In both the United States and Iraq, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki says Baghdad will sue private security firm Blackwater, amid a complete furor over an American court decision to drop charges against five Blackwater guards. The men are accused of shooting to death - in the middle of the Iraqi capital in broad daylight - 17 civilians.

Iraqi Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said on Friday that Iraq had "begun taking measures to bring Blackwater to justice."

AFP reports, "The guards, who had been part of a convoy of armored vehicles, had been charged with killing 14 unarmed Iraqi civilians and wounding 18 others during an unprovoked attack at a busy Baghdad intersection using guns and grenades."

Iraq says 17 people were killed.


"Blackwater's Cowboy Justice" by higgins By James Denselow The Huffington Post via Veterans Today, Jan. 7,2010

Seventeen Iraqi civilians were killed in Nisoor Square, Baghdad, on 16 September 2007. Some of the bodies were so badly shot up and burned that they had to be identified by their dental records. Guards from the private security firm Blackwater were accused of shooting randomly at the civilians as their convoy passed by, while the company insisted they were responding to an ambush.

Last week a US judge dismissed the charges against the guards on the grounds of procedural errors. The Iraqi government, perhaps also looking to score nationalist points as an election looms, was outraged. Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh accused the men of committing a "serious crime" and Prime Minister Maliki warned that "whether in the United States or in Iraq, we will not give our rights up".

As inertia continues to characterize the Middle East peace process and outreach to Iran and Syria, the Blackwater case casts more doubt on the ability of the Obama administration to live up to the rhetoric the president outlined in Cairo when he spoke of mutual "principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings". There is a shameful irony that the "new Iraq" is now criticising America on the basis of human rights and justice, with the Iraqi human rights minister, Wejdan Mikhail, saying she was "astonished" by the US decision to dismiss the case.

The role and remit of private security contractors in America's wars remain highly contested. The animosity felt towards these contractors in Iraq, in particular, is hard to exaggerate. The Iraqi war fired the starting gun for the mass privatisation of war - the burgeoning of private security companies staffed by ex-soldiers from armies across the world parodied in the John Cusack film War, Inc.

Meanwhile two more Blackwater thugs charged for deadly shooting but not quite murder. When Blackwater or US troops or other NATO troops kill innocent civilians due to carelessness or deliberately to revenge one of their own or just for the fun of it the UberConservatives and many of the citizens of the NATO Nations don't want to know about it or just don't care. So much for brotherly love, turn the other cheek or Love Your Enemies. Yeah they say Jesus said these things but he only meant this to apply to how one treats fellow Christians since the others that is all non-Christians are anti-God, anti-Jesus etc. and are bound for Hell since their very souls hve been sold out to Satan.

"Blackwater pair charged over deadly shooting" by James Bone at The,Jan. 8 ,2009

RALEIGH, N.C. — The security firm formerly known as Blackwater has reached a settlement in a series of federal lawsuits in which dozens of Iraqis accused the company of cultivating a reckless culture that allowed innocent civilians to be killed.

Plaintiffs' attorney Susan Burke filed a motion in federal court late Wednesday requesting the cases be dismissed. The seven lawsuits cited a pattern of illegal activity, including several killings such as the 2007 shooting in Iraq's capital that left 17 Iraqis dead and strained relationships between Washington and Baghdad.

Burke didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday. Blackwater, now known as Xe, released a statement saying the company was "pleased" that the settlement, in the works for months, had been affirmed.

"This enables Xe's new management to move the company forward free of the costs and distraction of ongoing litigation, and provides some compensation to Iraqi families," the company said.

Hassan Jabir, a lawyer who was wounded in the 2007 shooting, said that all of the victims' families and people who were injured agreed to the settlement and met with lawyers at a Baghdad hotel about a week ago. He hailed the settlement as a win for the plaintiffs.

"I feel like I achieved victory against the Blackwater firm," Jabir said.

Not all the plaintiffs appeared happy with the decision. Sami Hawas Hamoud Abu al-Iz also was wounded during the 2007 Nisoor Square incident along with his son. His mother was killed. He said the agreement came after the plaintiffs were told by their lawyers that there was a risk that they might not receive anything.

"All the victims' families signed the settlement papers under pressure, after we were informed that the Blackwater firm is broke and if you don't sign, you will get nothing," he said.

He said the firm offered $30,000 for each person who was wounded and $100,000 to the families of people who died.

Blackwater does in fact have a number of Uberconservative defenders who characterize Blackwater as Godd American Patriots & Heroes. These guys join Blackwater because they enjoy fighting or because it pays a lot better than the military does. The Ultraconservative (Moonie) The Washington Times defends Blackwater as American
heroes who should not be questioned on their behavior. Of course the WT argues this since Blackwater & other private Contractors &mercenaries are part of the Bush/Cheney Regime and therefore can do no wrong.So in their article the claim is that due to "Political Correctness" and "Liberalism" those in authority allowed the hearing to take place. These actions against Blackwater employees they claim is a form of public lynching. Once again conservatives misuse a term to suit their own agenda. Lynching has a long and horrifying history in America.

Most of the 12,000 or so people lynched in America between 1865-1948 were Black and the crimes they supposedly committed were often imaginary as in the application of the bigoted Jim Crow Laws or racist community standards such as a Black man dating or marrying a white woman or a black man just looking at a white women the wrong way or a black American attempting to register to vote.

It is in fact Blackwater that is accused of Lynchings that is public or private summary executions. As I have said before this is part of the angst and resentment felt by Conservatives that they are no longer able to practice various forms of "rough Justice" ie lynchings, Kangaroo Courts , killing or beating a black man bsed upon rumors and not hard evidence of a crime being committed.

It is also noteworthy that when it comes their belief in the American system of justice these UberConservatives seem to pick and choose which alleged criminals should get a fair hearing and a fair trial. As for "enemy combatants " or alleged terrorists suspects the hearings and trials they are given are far from fair. They don't get to see all of the evidence compiled against them or who their accusers are and they are not given the right to defend themselves or be defended by lawyers -since any intel or evidence can be classified as matters dealing with "National Security"-which often means that the evidence is slim to none or is based upon coerced testimony or even the result of threats and torture. And as for drug dealers and users or Blacks or Hispanics are pronounced guilty by the media and the those in authority so they see a trial as a cover-up for injustice.

So the Washington Times is glad about the ruling on this Blackwater case because they see Blackwater personnel as American heroes and its CEO & founder Erik Prince as a "Real American" who is a good Evangelical Christian out to rid the world of as many Muslims as possible since the followers in their view of Islam are following the Devil or Satan or the one who precedes the Anti-Christ.

"EDITORIAL: The Blackwater lynching:Justice targeted security contractors to score political points" Jan.7. 2010

In the long run, the United States gained nothing from trying to make an example of these men. American observers, whether or not they agree that the contractors acted in self-defense, see the case as a vindication of the process that protects the rights of the accused. But observes in the Middle East conclude the opposite. An editorial in Dubai's Khaleej Times said "a denial of justice in the Blackwater case clearly suggests that a privileged few are above the law." The lesson we draw from it is that war crimes are not limited to the battlefield.

Note the author is saying that it is of no consequence whether they are guilty or not. So if American soldiers decide to kill a few of the locals who cares. Since the victims are Arabs and are Muslim it doesn't matter because all Muslims they claim have taken an oath to kill all non-believers.
