Dy’er Sez: Blackwater founder Eric Prince was recently accused of ordering the murders of whistleblowers against his company. Now it has come out that he may have been directing murders not only of whistleblowers, but of civilians where his mercenaries were stationed, doing so from a wired up remote control room at the company’s base in North Carolina.
Yet, for some reason, the Obama administration keeps on signing over the checks to keep this company in the government’s employ.
Another thing I don’t understand: Why is it that the TV media is not covering this blockbuster of a story?

Another lawsuit targets founder of Blackwater
Yet another civil lawsuit accuses Blackwater guards of driving through the streets of Baghdad randomly shooting innocent Iraqis.
The latest case accuses Blackwater founder Erik Prince of personally directing murders from a 24-hour remote monitoring “war room” at the private military company’s Moyock, N.C., headquarters.
Prince “personally directed and permitted a heavily-armed private army… to roam the streets of Baghdad killing innocent civilians,” alleges the suit, filed by four Iraqi citizens.
Prince was well aware that his men, including top executives, “viewed shooting innocent Iraqis as sport,” the suit says. In fact, “those who killed and wounded innocent Iraqis tended to rise higher in Mr. Prince’s organization than those who abided by the rule of law.”
