Oh blackwater, keep on shootin’

So there’s this immensely unpopular corporation. And some of the employees are suspected of massacring citizens of a foreign nation. Also, they make life hard for foreigners in the same country who aren’t complete dickholes. And bAdmin. wrote this law that said they couldn’t be tried in the country where they committed the massacre. So of course bAdmin. wants to give them more money. Your money that is (via the AFP):

The US State Department said Friday it is extending its diplomat protection contract for private security firm Blackwater USA, despite the incident last September in which Blackwater guards killed 17 Iraqi civilians.

“I have requested and received approval to have Task Order 6, which Blackwater has to provide personal protective services in Baghdad, renewed for one year,” said Gregory Starr at the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security.

If bAdmin. can’t win the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people, they’ll get Blackwater to rip them out and pile them high before the Chimperor. Success!
