Blackwater the most militant

“Cowboys, quick on the trigger,” that’s Blackwater, according to an informative video about the US  security company operating in Iraq on this New York Times article Blackwater Tops All Firms in Iraq in Shooting Rate.

In the clip, Defense Secretary Robert Gates is said to be in favour of having the 130,000 private security personnel come under the military code of conduct, thus making essentially lawless mercenaries conform to military standards.

It’s worth a listen.
