Blackwater BS

The real story
Imagine barreling through Iraqi towns at 80 mph, jumping curbs, running lights, and running over a few people. I spoke with the proud parents of a woman serving in Iraq leading convoys at night to avoid civilian casualties. Only people in violation of curfew are out at night. Blackwater, however, is immune from prosecution, and routinely runs through towns in the middle of the day. How many people have they killed 'accidentally'? Blackwater is a rich dude that works for the Dark Side. He'll get his and so will Blackwater. Judgement Day is coming.
