Expect News Of Firefights Between US Soldiers And Blackwater Type Thugs

At some point there will be tragic dust ups, if it hasn't happened already.

"Oct. 15, 2007 issue - The colonel was furious. "Can you believe it? They actually drew their weapons on U.S. soldiers." He was describing a 2006 car accident, in which an SUV full of Blackwater operatives had crashed into a U.S. Army Humvee on a street in Baghdad's Green Zone. The colonel, who was involved in a follow-up investigation and spoke on the condition he not be named, said the Blackwater guards disarmed the U.S. Army soldiers and made them lie on the ground at gunpoint until they could disentangle the SUV."

Or it could be just a vain attempt to set the US military up as the good guys.

I don't doubt that they may be considered the lesser of two evils, which isn't really saying much, considering their track records in Iraq.

Good point Nick. Also more obfuscation about why the hell american troops are in that country in the first place.
