Pentagon Rewards Blackwater For MURDER!!

The Pentagon has rewarded Blackwater for MURDER!!

Pentagon Issues Blackwater New $92 Million Contract

Earlier this month, Blackwater USA was involved in the fatal shooting of 11 Iraqi civilians. While the Iraqi government swiftly condemned the contractor, the Bush administration has continued to back Blackwater’s story that it was “defensive fire.”

Last Thursday, Gen. Peter Pace told reporters, “Blackwater has been a contractor in the past with the department and could certainly be in the future.” The next day, that future was already here. The Pentagon had issued a new list of contracts, including one worth $92 million to Presidential Airways, the “aviation unit of parent company Blackwater.” From the release:

Presidential Airways, Inc., an aviation Worldwide Services company (d/b/a Blackwater Aviation), Moyock, N.C., is being awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) type contract for $92,000,000.00. The contractor is to provide all fixed-wing aircraft, personnel, equipment, tools, material, maintenance and supervision necessary to perform passenger, cargo and combi Short Take-Off and Landing air transportation services between locations in the Area of Responsibility of Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan. This contract was competitively procured and two timely offers were received. The performance period is from 1 Oct. 2007 to 30 September 2011.

Government officials have repeatedly ignored Blackwater’s transgressions. Senior Iraqi officials “repeatedly complained to U.S. officials” about Blackwater’s “alleged involvement in the deaths of numerous Iraqis, but the Americans took little action to regulate the private security firm.”

Next week. Rep. David Price (D-NC) plans to introduce legislation “to extend the reach of U.S. civil courts to include security contractors in Iraq.”

I can just picture the conversation.

PENTAGON: Congratulations!! Your work (murder) to keep America safe is greatly appreciated.

BLACKWATER: Thank you!! We're honored and proud to be doing great work (murder) on behalf of the United States of America.

PENTAGON: Now, to show our appreciation for your work (murder), we would like to reward you with a new 92 million dollar contract to continue your great work (murder) in Iraq.

BLACKWATER: We won't let America down!!

These thugs make me sick!!

    But don't worry, I'm sure the Congressional investigations will clear everything up, and we can go back to the hard work of fixing the electrical grid, the water supply and healing the rift between Sunni, Shiite and Kurd.
