    of course these guys will just disappear and resurface somewhere else. These guys are part of the corporate goon structure that gets "Americans" into all kinds of trouble. Blackwater is now Academi https://www.academi.com/pages/about-us

    My criticisms of Obama aren't based on ridiculous false narratives and talking points.

    I can give very specific examples of Obama's deceit and failed policies and don't have to rely on platitudes to justify my criticisms.

    People that were sucked in by the " lied us into war " Democrat narrative typically support Obama and his policies.

    The rest of us weren't gullible enough to buy into the Bush / Cheney hate Fest that was so prevalent back during Bush's presidency.

    We realize he's the last honest President we've had in some time.

    Another sad chapter in the whole American-Iraqi mess is written.
    Why did this take place in the U.S and not Iraq if iraq was a soverign democracy the whole time we were there?
