Author Speaks in Holland on Blackwater

I plan to read Jeremy Scahill's book Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army. Recently he visited Holland Michigan and delivered a talk about Blackwater USA, its founder, and the privatization of our military.

Check out the article at Media Mouse

Blackwater was also used in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, doing the work originally intended for the National Guard.
