Metric Of The Day

October 2nd, 2007at 06:12pm Posted by Eli

Blackwater CEO Erik Prince, defending his mercenaries’ contractors’ penchant for blowing away Iraqi civilians (including Iraqi VP’s bodyguards) and then covering it up:

He said that though 30 Blackwater employees had lost their lives in Iraq, no one they were guarding had been killed or seriously injured, and added, “There is no better evidence of the skill and dedication of these men.”

If that’s the best measure Prince can come up with, then he’s just not trying very hard. Or, alternatively, he simply does not see minimizing civilian casualties as part of the mission or, indeed, as even relevant.

Yet another right-wing sociopath with power over life and death.
