Blackwater, the sequel

Blackwater's goons mercenaries have been given immunity by the State Department.

How awfully convenient. The State Department has been determined all along to make sure that nobody will ever be held accountable from Blackwater for anything. By granting immunity to the gunmen who shot 17 Iraqis for no goddamn good reason, the State Department has ensured that.

But that's the modus operandi of the Bush Administration. This time, however, there were no E-4s or Army reservists to pin the blame upon, so they are doing the best they can to sweep the entire sanguinary mess under the carpet.

Condolezza Rice doesn't just have blood on her hands; she has bathed in it.

Addendum: Democrats have criticized the grants of immunity. (Yawn) Notify me when they actually do something about it, other than flap their gums.

Definitions:
Blackwater...aside from that horrific Doobie Bro. song...the portion of raw sewage containing "solid waste" (ie "floaters", "skinless, finless, brown trout", shit)
...a particularly nasty form of malaria which brings about kidney failure so one pees blood hence the name "blackwater fever".
These guys are so fucked. I just comfort myself by calling them "the world's most highly-paid rent-a-cops"
