Condi Sighting: Tries to Stop Blackwater Being Kicked Out of Iraq

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts) on September 18th, 2007 10:49 am by HL

Yesterday we ran the story of brutal mercenary outfit Blackwater Security being booted out of Iraq after they finally killed one two many innocent civilians. I said that once Bush and Cheney find out about this that the situation would probably be quickly be reversed. Today Condi Rice (remember her, she is the secretary of state) is apologizing to Al-Maliki, and attempting to keep Blackwater in Iraq. We’ll be back tomorrow with the story about how they will be staying. (Even though it hasn’t happened yet)

Rice apologises for US security firm shootings

Guardian UK
Excerpt· Move to prevent Iraq government expulsions
· Blackwater guards blamed for deaths of eight civilians

he US secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, apologised to the Iraqi government yesterday in an attempt to prevent the expulsion of all employees of the security firm Blackwater USA.

The ministry of interior yesterday took the decision to expel Blackwater after eight Iraqi civilians were killed and 13 wounded in Baghdad when shots were fired from a US state department convoy on Sunday.

Diplomats, engineers and other westerners in Iraq rely heavily on protection by Blackwater. The Iraqi decision created confusion on the ground, with uncertainty over whether protection was still available and whether Blackwater staff should leave the country immediately.

Ms Rice called the prime minister, Nuri al-Maliki, to apologise for the shooting. They agreed to run a “fair and transparent investigation”, according to a statement from Mr Maliki’s office.

It added: “She has expressed her personal apologies and the apologies of the government of the United States. She confirmed that the United Sates will take immediate actions to prevent such actions from happening again.”

HL’s Take
How is she going to prevent it from happening again? Is she going to ride along with all Blackwater operatives and say “Not now boys” every time one of them aims a gun at a pregnant mother or old man? What a load of crap.

Student Tasered by Police at Kerry Event in Florida

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts), Videos on September 18th, 2007 10:37 am by HL

John Kerry was doing a Q&A at an event in Florida, a guy starts asking questions about Kerry conceding the election he won, he then asks if Kerry is a member of Skull & Bones. At that point the cops grab him and mayhem ensues. Kerry says let me answer that, but the cops have different idea. What a country, the guy who gives the Presidency to Skull brother Bush is asked about it and is dragged away and tasered. I guess we have our answers to both questions.
