New Item: Will Blackwater be expelled from Iraq?

After recent alleged killings of civilians by Blackwater operatives, the Iraqi Interior Minister on Tuesday said he wanted to expel the security firm from Iraq. Due to an overextended military, the Bush administration is attempting to protect Blackwater—the largest such firm in Iraq.

In a Real News interview, Jeremy Scahill author of Blackwater, says: "The United States government has gutted the Iraqi legal system and basically tried to prevent them from holding accountable mercenaries who commit crimes inside of Iraq."

Iraqi Interior Minister on Tuesday revokes Blackwater’s license.

Checkbook Imperialism: The Blackwater Fiasco

Robert Scheer writes for Truthdig: "Please, please, I tell myself, leave Orwell out of it. Find some other, fresher way to explain why 'Operation Iraqi Freedom' is dependent upon killer mercenaries. Or why the 'democratically elected government' of 'liberated' Iraq does not explicitly have the legal power to expel Blackwater USA from its land or hold any of the 50,000 private contractor troops that the US government has brought to Iraq accountable for their deadly actions."

180,000 Private Contractors Mercenaries Flood Iraq

The United States has assembled an imposing industrial army in Iraq larger than its uniformed fighting force and responsible for a such a broad swath of responsibilities the military might not be able to operate without its private-sector partners.
