Government outsourcing according to Bush-Cheney ?
. To Halliburton: drill, baby, drill
. To Blackwater: kill, baby, kill
Even if Blackwater didn't succeed in capturing nor killing jihadists*, the contractor managed to kill at least 17 Iraqi civilians in 2007. A small step compared to the hundreds of thousand deaths caused by that illegal invasion, but a giant leap for a private corporation.
So as someone said, Mission: accomplished.
And Magna cum laude according to standards set by then Amerikan rulers, most notably :
. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, a.k.a. The Chief Torture Officer, head of the Destruction of Justice
. Vice President Dick Cheney, a.k.a. The Chairman of the Waterboard, a supervillain with a knack for illegality and infamy.
. President George W. Bush, a.k.a The Fundamentalist in Chief, a stubborn again theocrat under whose rule America ended up one Supreme Justice away from outright fascism.
We don't know yet what CIA's Leon Panetta will come up with next, but expect more public outcries than five years ago when, even as all abuses were perfectly known, Dubya's Weapons of Mass Disinformation earned him a clear mandate from American voters to keep digging.
Eric Holder, this is your time to shine and restore justice in the US.
