Nurse Praises Blackwater Protection

As the story of 2-year-old Amina Al'a Thabit continues to unfold in the press, new details continue to praise Blackwater's role.

The Bowling Green Daily News cites registered nurse Lisa Van Wye (pictured), who works at the Vanderbilt Medical Center. She was part of the medical team that first brought little Amina to the United States.

From the Daily News:
“My job was basically to help take care of Amina and her mother during the trip,” [Van Wye] said....

Van Wye and the several others who accompanied Amina were also wary as they made their way through the war-torn country to an airfield in neighboring Jordan.

“We were in a convoy of vehicles protected by Blackwater security. There was a little bit of anxiety, but I felt very safe.”
