State Department option: Hire Blackwater as 'temporary' USG employees

The State Department is considering several options concerning the use of Blackwater security guards in Iraq. While the headlines have been focusing on an option to phase out or terminate Blackwater's contract, other options are on the table - including one to hire Blackwater guards as "temporary" US government employees.

Don't look near the leads of the stories for that option, though. It's buried in the last sentence of an Associated Press report.
