I think it's interesting that Iraqis consider Blackwater to be covert agents, because that's what we always assumed they were when I was in the service! They are mercenaries, of course. They are a private company hired to fulfill a specific military purpose, with a lower profile and fewer checks on their actions. If some of them happen to be CIA agents as well, well who would know? What happened wednesday bothers me, but what also bothers me is that blackwater has declared their desire to become an INTERNATIONAL "contractor". Special organizations like this seem to me to be an effort to circumvent normal rules and restrictions placed (for good reason) on regular troops.

Hmmm....well when you put it like that...a mercenary looking for a legitimate status, and a job that involves shooting back.

Still, im puzzled: if these guys are armed, and used to provide protection for contract workers in Iraq, how come none of them took any iraqis with them when they were ambushed? Did they get hit that quickly?

I mean, if they are ex soldiers...well, we are taught to read the signs..and walk away or get ready to rumble. Must not have been first line security guards.

Cry, I'm just curious .. are you going to keep us up to date on all of your career moves? Or just the ones you shouldn't be plastering all over the internet in a public forum?

About Blackwater, these were professional men .. two of them very close friends of mine. Let's not critique their deaths. RIP lads.
