New revelations are coming out about the CIA hiring Blackwater to run assassination teams into Iraq and Afghanistan back in 2004. This is an absolute disaster. In an effort to avoid responsibility and culpability, the CIA and the U.S. retain but but end up losing absolute control. Idiots!
Jeremy Scahill, contributing writer to The Nation, a correspondent for "Democracy Now!" and author of "Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army", joins me today at 1:05 p.m. e.t. to talk about it.
