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 Blackwaterthe 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 Blackwaters license.
