Iraq: Blackwater Must Go

Iraq has ordered about 250 former and current employees of Balckwater Worldwide to leave the country within seven days or face having their visas pulled.

Blackwater is now known as XE, but is still based in Currituck County. The orders out of Iraq come in the Wake of a U.S. judge dismissing criminal charges against five Blackwater guards who were accused in the September 2007 shooting deaths of 1 Iraqis in Baghdad.

The shooting inflamed an anti-American sentiment in Iraq.
