Oh <em>No</em>! Not Blackwater!

I love news items that try and raise concerns about security contractors. They inevitably involve some manufactured hysteria about the dangerous intersection of the market and our national security — when in reality, nothing could be better for our national security than to have some market forces governing it.

Now, libs are screaming that Blackwater, elite force in the private military contracting business, actually relied on personnel who were native to the country Blackwater was operating in to conduct business. Oh no! Having someone with first hand knowledge of what's going on in-country is a terrible idea.
