Jeremy Scahill of The Nation talks to Countdown’s Keith
Olbermann about his explosive story on Blackwater’s
murder and arms smuggling
. Scahill, the leading expert on the
military contractor, explains the background on Blackwater’s arms
smuggling, and notes that this new evidence “begs for a really serious
investigation.” Between the illegal weapons, the use of explosive
ammunition not used by the military, and most chilling of all, the
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
?”
