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.

    Woodrow, you mean like billionaire George Soros that owns the democratic party...right? I am sure the Rockefellas are in the fight along with the Kennedys...denial is a terrible thing. Progressives are some of the richest people in the USA.

    I believe the lamestream media & our Muslim loving president Obonga doesn't want Blackwater security in Iraq because they feel by having stability is causing a discomfort among Iraqi people which on the other hand are unstable & infiltrated with terrorist minded ones. Iraq isn't stable enough for them to leave and that's the only reason they're there in the first place. These guys are former military & law enforcement guys. If they're not doing their job as they should, correct the matter but they shouldn't be made to leave because of lamestream media propaganda initiated by the Obonga camp.

    While Irag will always be a s-hole, these clowns from Blackwater are nothing more than Walmart security flunkies. Their only purpose over there is to get rich, using poorly trained, overly hyped wash-outs from all the creditable agencies in the US. Let good old Republican business tycoons go in there and we'll see some positive changes...

    If Black water comes home we should bring all of our troops home also.

    I guess if they make a mistake or the story isn't true, XE is already guilty no matter what...Justice?

    "....accused in the September 2007 shooting deaths of 1 Iraqis in Baghdad" how many people does 1 Iraqi equal? I wonder if the prosecutors in Iraq have ties with the terrorists and want to take over more areas in Iraq because of the oil & gold there. hmmm
