Blackwater, Payback is a Mother

There has been a number of statements by US military officers about how reckless Blackwater's goons are. I referenced some of them yesterday.

What may be going on, at least in part, is some payback by the military brass against Blackwater and the other contractors. There has been some stories over the years in which various officers expressed frustration at the contractors for providing a market for special forces trained soldiers, who can leave the military and then come back as a contractor for six figure salaries.

Payback is indeed a mother.
