Several have already pointed to this story, and one even has direct experience with the mercenaries at Blackwater. But when I wrote this yesterday, I had no idea this was happening on the ground in Iraq.
It is time to shut down this mercenary army. Please contact David Price today and tell him Congress should stop funding mercenaries to do the jobs our military is supposed to be doing.
Employees of Blackwater USA, a private security firm under contract to the State Department, opened fire on the streets of Baghdad twice in two days last week, and one of the incidents provoked a standoff between the security contractors and Iraqi forces, U.S. and Iraqi officials said.
Do it. Contact David Price now.
