I picked up Jeremy Scahill’s “Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army” at the airport’s bookstore and read about half of it on my flight home the other day. It’s an eye-opening read for those (like me) who have only heard whispers about Blackwater and hadn’t realized how much they are now being used by the Cheney administration.
