Bush creates budget "black hole" for Blackwater

Illegitimate wars breed this kind of corruption and waste:
Since June of 2004, the Bush administration has paid the Blackwater security firm at least $320 million for "diplomatic security" services worldwide, The Nation reports. More striking, the State Department -- who oversees the contract -- can't explain why they've paid the company $100 million more than they contracted for.

Yes, lets give 'em an extra $100 million, since Blackwater was billing it's profits into its expenses and performing other amazing accounting feats while the Bush Crime Family happily cuts the check.

You, me and every tax-payer takes it up the ass once again for the war profiteers!

Give me a list of other qualified security firms that could do this type of job. Did you ever think Blackwater maybe the best for this type of situation? And, wouldn't you want the best security you could provide?

I bet you'd find out there aren't too many qualified "Diplomatic Security" companies out there to begin with and Blackwater is far above the rest.....

This blog post never questioned how qualified Blackwater was at it's job, the whole purpose for the post was to call out the fiscal irresponsibility of this Bush Administration!
