Private military contractor to investigate Blackwater

The State Department will outsource the investigation of Blackwater's conduct in Iraq to another private military contractor, US Investigations Services.

USIS trained Iraqi commando teams under a Pentagon contract.

The late Col. Ted Westhusing was investigating possible contract violations and human rights abuses by USIS personel in Iraq when he died under mysterious circumstances in 2005.

So, USIS is an ideal choice for the Bush administration to investigate a massacre by private military contractors.

Why am I not surprised by this?

The past 7 1/2 years have brought many new meanings to the term 'private contractor'

Well, they didn't call it the "Salvador option" for nothing, you know...
