A thought on Blackwater

In 2004, Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, founder of DailyKos and a military veteran, had this to say about Blackwater and its ilk:

I feel nothing over the death of merceneries. [sic] They aren't in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.

And oh, how the wingnuts howled with rage.

Now, it turns out there's some truth to Moulitsas Zuniga's words. And the wingnuts are curiously silent as they squirm in their seats.
