22. Excellent post.
On tonight's rerun of yesterday's Daily Show, they had a man on who had written a book about Blackwater. And he was describing how the private mercenaries didn't have to follow the same rules and how they weren't included in the withdrawal plan, allowing a 'shadow war' to go on even after we had 'left Iraq'. I knew that, but he went on to say that they weren't just hiring Americans. When Chile- which finally has a democratic government again- refused to sign its military up with the coalition of the willing, Blackwater went in and hired Chileans independently, including many former fighters from Pinochet's army. I shouldn't be surprised, but I was.

We're sending terrorists to Iraq. :yoiks:
