Pressure on Blackwater

That bill to put private military contractors under the same accountability as any American citizen for their crimes? Passed the House with 389 votes. So much for that veto threat. The next move once this passes into law is to find that drunken PMC who killed the Iraq bodyguard and arrest him.

In addition, Nouri al-Maliki has reiterated his position that Blackwater must leave Iraq. Everyone who thinks that Iraq is a sovereign nation should take a look at this. The Iraqi government keeps telling Blackwater to leave, and the Americans make excuses, and... nothing happens. That's life in an occupied territory.
