Potential prosecution of Blackwater guards allegedly involved in the shooting deaths of 17 Iraqi civilians last month may have been compromised because the guards received immunity for statements they made to State Department officials investigating the incident, federal law enforcement officials said yesterday.
Oh gosh, how could that ever have happened? Now our whole disgusting and embarrassing episode is just ruined.
I’m so sorry I could just cry.
