No US congressman has complained that Blackwater protected them too aggressively

There is much angst on Capitol Hill about Blackwater protecting American diplomats "too aggressively" in Iraq.

But Blackwater has also protected all of the US congressmen and senators who have gone to Iraq on official visits. Well over 100 of them - probably many more.

Yet not one of them has come forward to denounce the company for protecting them too aggressively. Not John Kerry. Not Hillary Clinton. Not Henry Waxman. Why is that the case?
