Jeremy Scahill of The Nation talks to Countdown’s Keith
Olbermann about his explosive story on Blackwater’s

idea that Blackwater operatives killed civilians as practice, the
picture of the military contractor gets darker by the day. Yet, as
Scahill notes, “Who deployed Blackwater? Who continues to pay
Blackwater
?”
