Blackwater is a clear and present danger to our freedoms. There are more than 1,000 Blackwater mercenaries now in Georgia training Georgians to fight
the Russians. I am sure many of these are fresh from duties in Iraq and Afghanistan where they have honed an experienced private fighting force
comparable to the old Nazi Waffen SS. In fact, author Jeremy Scahill, who wrote in indepth account of the religious fundamentalists and Bush
supporters who created Blackwater, stated that such paramilitary groups "bring to mind Nazi Party brownshirts." To me, it is incompatable with
freedom and individual liberty to maintain a private army over which the public has no control.
