Blackwater: License to Kill Revoked
As if that would stop them...
The Iraqi government announced yesterday that the authorization granted to Blackwater, an American private security company, was revoked following a fusillade that left at least 8 Iraqis dead. A spokesman for the Interior Ministry says that Blackwater employees opened fire on a crowd of civilians in Nisoor Square in the predominantly Sunni neighborhood of Mansour after a mortar round landed near their convoy.
Update via BBC: "All Blackwater personnel have been told to leave Iraq immediately" Ha ha. All 140,000 of them!
