The Administration Must Rewrite The Rules
To Restrict Private Security Contractors
Assessment Needed To Examine Blackwater’s Failures
 

WASHINGTON - September 18 - Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), released the following statement after news reports today detail that Iraq’s Interior Ministry revoked the license of Blackwater USA. The American security firm was blamed for a Sunday gun battle in Baghdad that left eight civilians dead.

“The Administration needs to be called before Congress to see if Blackwater’s failures are provoking more conflict in Iraq,” Kucinich said. “We shouldn’t have mercenaries in Iraq or any other war zone. Not only should the State Department launch a full and complete investigation into this incident, but Congress should also hold Blackwater accountable. “Congress needs to examine whether the United States should even use security contractors in war zones. A thorough and comprehensive examination is needed to know the true implications of American security firms in Iraq.”
