The US security firm Blackwater has resumed limited operations in the Iraqi capital Baghdad four days after a deadly shootout involving the company.
The company provides security to all US state department employees in Iraq.
It had been ordered by the Iraqi government too halt operations while a joint US-Iraqi inquiry was held.

I haven't read this whole thread, but my buddy is an MP, he says Blackwater has been unbanned. He says the US military has threatened the Iraqi gov that they would leave if Blackwater isn't allowed in, and the heads of the Iraqi mil. instantly buckled and gave in.
I haven't seen this substantiated, but thought I would share.

How many Blackwater personnel are working in Iraq right now? And what sort of assignments are they handling that the US Military won't?
