Oh Black Water, Keep On Rolling

I don't know about you but I'm thinking that if you pull your weapon and tell U.S. soldiers in a war zone to disarm and lie on their stomachs, you're gonna be in big, big trouble. No way you'd get away with that right? Well, unless your part of the secret army the Bush administration has employed to do their dirty work for them because they apparently believe U.S. soldiers are not up to the task.

Check out this Newsweek article . . .
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. His account was confirmed by the head of another private security company. Asked to address this and other allegations in this story, Blackwater spokesperson Anne Tyrrell said, "This type of gossip has led to many soap operas in the press."

Seems like an act of treason to me but what do I know? Too bad we can't seem to support our troops though!
