  •  Xe is a disgrace to our (16+ / 0-)

    country and I do not understand why after all that has occurred they still have contracts with our government. Mercenary killer thugs turned loose on civilian populations makes us the terrorists. God knows what they do in the dark for the out of control CIA. All in all outsourcing and privatizing our security, jobs and labor has made our economy and these illegal, immoral wars for profit, a disaster for the citizens who in the end foot the bill, both culturally and economically. Oliver's Army should not be here to stay. Thanks for your work on the people's behalf we need more like you in our government.    

    •  State Dept has new Blackwater contracts (5+ / 0-)

      worth mega millions. (Wasn't Clinton against Blackwater contracts before she took over State Dept?) I seem to recall that she sponsored a bill to stop Blackwater contracts while still in the Senate.

      The CIA and Pentagon are still awarding Blackwater contracts.

      Blackwater now bidding on a new 1 billion contract to train Afghanistan army with DOD...just kind of makes you wonder what kind of Afghan army the USA wants.

      In a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don't have to waste time voting.

        mercenaries also. don't they think anybody notices that these goons are still operating. They also provided the NYT security when they were in war zones reporting etc. Some one about 5 years ago asked Krugman about this in an interview and he tried to rationalize it away but blushed when confronted with this in the midst of discussing how bad Blackwater was.
