Laura Flanders Interviews Jeremy Scahill Over Blackwater Scandal

Should we be calling this "Blackwatergate"?

Jeremy Scahill, author of  Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army writes in the  Nation that Blackwater founder Erik Prince “may have murdered or facilitated the murder of individuals who were cooperating with federal authorities investigating the company,” according to the sworn testimony of a former Blackwater employee and an ex-US marine. Scahill discusses the story and its implications for Prince and Blackwater itself. You can read Scahill’s blog, Rebel Reports,  here.
