The Nation‘s Jeremy Scahill and Keith Olbermann discuss the explosive news
Scahill broke on Tuesday
: Blackwater’s founder, Erik Prince, has
been accused, in sworn depositions from two former employees, of
murder. Scahill notes that Blackwater being involved in scandal is “no
great surprise,” but the explosive details in the report confirm
Prince’s view of the war in Iraq as a religious crusade. More
importantly, Scahill says, the Justice Department is in possession of
this information, and according to the attorneys in the civil case
from which these depositions came, Prince could be eligible for murder
