much 'change' going on there...
Blackwater (rebranded as Xe in an
effort to escape theie rape-is-legal past) recently received a
$100 million contract from the CIA
to secure its bases in Afghanistan. The State Department also
awarded them $120 million to provide security for new diplomatic
buildings, including consulates
outside Kabul, giving the firm a total of $220 million in new contracts in Afghanistan.
remarkable, given the extremely negative image Blackwater has
throughout the world. That people
even know about a private security company is a bad sign in itself. Not
surprisingly, CIA Director
Leon Panetta had to go on the offensive to defend the contracts.
The contracts are certainly problematic. But the real issue is not
but U.S. military grand strategy.
From a financial aspect, it is not surprising that Blackwater got the
contracts. For the CIA contract alone,
Blackwater bid a full $26 million below the next lowest bidder, quite
significant considering the contract
was for $100 million. This low bid was made possible largely by the
many huge contracts Blackwater
received in Iraq. With close ties to the Bush administration,
Blackwater was the 12th largest contractor
in Iraq, even though it was not tasked to build embassies and roads.
They pulled in almost $500 million
between 2004 and 2006.
THIS is why Republicans get into
wars of choice.

So, they contribute millions to the most belligerent,

He becomes president, Blackwater makes their $100 million

And the Democrats refuse to list the facts
so we re-load and do it all again.
