Blackwater Carves No-Man’s Land Free From Accountability


Tuesday, April 24th, 2007


Jeremy Scahill discusses his new book “Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army.” “Blackwater has openly declared its forces above the law,” he writes. “While resisting attempts to subject its private soldiers to the Pentagon’s Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ)–insisting they are civilians–Blackwater has simultaneously claimed immunity from civilian litigation in the United States, saying its forces are a part of the US Total Force.” The conversation also touches on Blackwater’s bid to serve as “peacekeepers” in , and the dangerous precedent of Blackwater’s domestic deployment in New Orleans. Francesa Rheannon of Writer’s Voice co-hosts the program with Bill Baue.
