And Eric Prince should be facing the music tomorrow.

Blackwater portrayed as out of control

Eric Prince, the ultra rightwing owner of Blackwater is due at a hearing in the House tomorrow. Here's hoping he faces the kind of heat he deserves.

He's got friends in high places..I'm not holding my breath.

Then again, I didn't expect the Senate to address Rush calling our soldiers phonies if they oppose the endless occupation of Iraq and they did address it today.

In my view, BlackWater should be barred from Iraq at the very least, and barred from contracts with the U.S. govenment.

But I fear some of those in our government see the advantages of having a private merc army in Iraq that is above all law. Makes torturing and rendering individuals less problematic.

I couldn't watch it. Really. I turned it on. And then my temper started boiling watching the smirky self satisfaction on Prince's face. And on the Repuke committee members. It was too early in the day to be that angry.
