APNewsBreak: Feds indict ex-Blackwater president
State-controlled Associated Press ^ | Fri Apr 16 | By MIKE BAKER

Posted on 04/16/2010 8:25:39 PM PDT by USALiberty

The former president of Blackwater Worldwide and four other former officials at the embattled security firm were indicted Friday on federal weapons charges, partially the result of a raid two years ago by agents that rounded up 22 weapons, including AK-47s.

The indictment issued Friday charges Gary Jackson, who left the company last year in a management shakeup, along with four other former workers. The charges against Jackson include a conspiracy to violate firearms laws, false statements and possession of an unregistered firearm.

WHAT PART of "shall not be infringed" do these Marxists not get?

By driving Blackwater and similar firms out of business via these sham prosecutions, who's going to protect American diplomats and intelligence personnel and non-combat civilian contractors in the war zones?

Stupid.

Disgusting. Politically motivated attack. Another attempt to knock America down to size by the marxist in the WH. This diminishes our ability to project power around the globe — just what the bastard bam wants.

So, what’s the story on the Black Panthers armed with clubs who threatened and intimidated voters outside the polling station in Philly? How’s that investigation coming along, Mr. Holder? Are indictments imminent? /sarc

And, so it starts!

Even under contract, weapons are bad!

Here we have folks who are under contract to defend us - in many cases because it’s too dangerous a territory to defend ourselves (within the local citizen kill zone, donch’a know)!

But our new socialist US government has decided that all guns are bad: Best to give enemies a frozen yogurt swirlee stopoff: So they can be on their way, once they stop in the restroom to wipe the human blood off their dull knives!

Whether they are technically guilty of breaking a law or not... it appears a lot like harassment, to me.

Remember whomever it was that called John P. O’Neil’s cell phone at that one fatal banquet and whomever it was that picked up his breifcase.

No... the investigators are never “used....”

You got that right. Going after Scott Coleman can backfire. Big time.

The obama thugs are picking a fight with mercanaries.
Kinda like poking a stick into a hornet’s nest.
Or pissing off a water moccasin. Either way, he is going to get stung/bit.

The term “fragging” resulted from well-intentioned actions.

Oh, they get every part of that statement; they just refuse to be bound by it. If you ask me, they're begging for an outbreak of "Unintended Consequences".

A completely political prosecution.

God only knows how many million people the Obama faction is going to ultimately get killed.

Ha-hahaha! You forgot your sarcasm tag!

TC utilizes Ugandans in Iraq for internal security only. Those Ugandans are not well liked.
