The Thing About Blackwater

The issues to look at with Blackwater are not only the atrocities they have carried out and are carrying out in Iraq and Afghanistan. The root of it is privatization. The right wing/neo-con effort to privatize everything where the government is concerned from toll roads, to hospitals, to healthcare, public services, and the military... What we have is people elected to public office taking public money and placing it in the hands of private corporations,handing $92 millions dollars and then hundreds of millions more to Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater. What has happened in Iraq should prove beyond a doubt that the neo-cons are nothing but fuckups and that we should not be allowing them to have way with the public trust.
