Blackwater update

posted by The Sailor @ 5:50 PM Permalink

Remember when the State Department immediately released a report absolving Blackwater after they murdered Iraqi civilians ... again?

Yeah, well that report, from the State Department, on their letterhead, was written by Blackwater:
Blackwater contractor wrote government report on incident

The State Department's initial report of last month's incident in which Blackwater guards were accused of killing Iraqi civilians was written by a Blackwater contractor working in the embassy security detail, according to government and industry sources.
The man who approved the report was Ricardo Colon, whom the embassy source identified as the embassy's deputy regional security officer. A State Department source confirmed a Ricardo Colon Cifredo works for the State Department in Iraq.
The State Department "spot report" underscores that scenario and doesn't mention civilian casualties.
