This week congress started investigations into Blackwater’s role in Iraq and last month’s unprovoked shooting of Iraqi civilians. Finally the average American started to become aware of this group and how it functions.
Yesterday Blackwater was dispatched by the American Embassy to rescue the Polish Ambassador who was under attack. And today we are hearing how indispensible Blackwater is to the mission in Iraq. The claim is that there was nobody else the embassy could send by helicopter to rescue him.
It would seem that in previous wars regular military would have handled this type of rescue. And since the American taxpayer pays either way why doesn’t the military handle these issues?
This has given the media a chance to spin all of Blackwater’s positives.
Watch this clip from yesterday’s CBS Evening News.
Undoubtedly this is the beginning of glorifying Blackwater.
