Blackwater USA, the U.S. Embassy’s security provider in Iraq, almost got thrown out of Iraq by that uppity al-Maliki government for firing on civilians on Sunday. But now the Iraqi’s have apparently backed down and will not permanently revoke their license.
So, now it looks like BlackWater stays instead of flies? Speaking of flies I wonder if any of those rough and tough trigger-happy $200K per year BlackWater guys have ever been exposed to our Black Flies in the black water here in Maine? Maybe they’re lucky to be in Iraq, although if they want some target practice why not invite them here to take out our Black Flies during the black fly season? Piece of cake? Not if some black flies from our black running water get under the helmet or up the sleeve. Then they’d wish they were back in Iraq for sure!
