Blackwater Worldwide Update

Blackwater Worldwide expert Jeremy Scahill op-eds in the LAT today that BW has essentially wormed its way into the structure of the "defense community," is looking to become a vital part of the "Secure Borders" myth, & is offering its espionage services to the gummint & (You guessed it!) Fortune 1000 corporations. And it won't matter who's in the House of Whiteness after noon on 20 January 2009. Never forget the "War on Drugs," either. (You think the "Global War on Terror" is "The Long War?" Think again.)
Blackwater was asked by the Pentagon to bid for a share of a whopping $15-billion contract to "fight terrorists with drug-trade ties" in countries such as Colombia, Bolivia, Afghanistan and Uzbekistan. Analysts say it could be the company's "biggest job" ever.
How long 'til their bully-boys are breaking down doors in your neighborhood, under some sort of contractual deal that limits their liability & your Constitutional rights? Go ahead & hold your breath, because it won't be that long.
