Blackwater Stinks From America To Iraq

Let us call a spade a spade, Blackwater is blackwater indeed as defined by Wikipedia:

Blackwater (waste) is a relatively recent term used to describe water containing fecal matter and urine. It is also known as brown water, foul water, or sewage. It is distinct from greywater or sullage, the residues of washing processes.
Blackwater is heavily polluted and difficult to treat because of the high concentrations of mostly organic pollution.
The term is commonly used on recreational vehicles where separate tanks collect blackwater and greywater wastes.

American taxpayers are paying $445,000 per year for each Blackwater guard in Iraq.
A total waste of public fund in a lost cause.

The fact is, Blackwater is guilty of the violations of the Rule of Engagement in the war in Iraq. This is another glaring evidence that President George Walker Bush has bungled the mission in Iraq. Blackwater is a failure of military strategy by the US Armed Forces in Iraq.

When Bush knew that he would fail woefully, he passed the buck to Erik Prince and Al-Clark. The dummb and dumber have completed the mess. And Blackwater stinks from North Carolina to Iraq.

"America used to be the beacon of the world, but under the Bush administration and people like Blackwater, the beacon is flickering."

"We can restore democracy to our military decisions about war. And we can make sure that scandals like Blackwater become, forever, a thing of the past."

~ Sen. John Edwards

"We cannot win a fight for hearts and minds when we outsource critical missions to unaccountable contractors," Obama said. "To add insult to injury, these contractors are charging taxpayers up to nine times more to do the same jobs as soldiers, a disparity that damages troop morale."

"Last week, I pushed through a provision to improve transparency by requiring our federal government to inform the public about how many contractors they're using, what it's costing us, and what their functions are."

"I've also proposed tougher government reform than any other candidate in this race -reforms that would eliminate the kind of no-bid contracts that this administration has given to Blackwater."
~ Sen. Barack Obama
