Waxman is making up stories again

Congressman Henry Waxman (D-Cal.), who is using his chairmanship of a House oversight panel to help a trial lawyer sue Blackwater, is recycling his old allegations into new headlines again.

This time he's generating news by repeating old statements alleging that Blackwater's contractors aren't really contractors, and that the security provider should be paying tens of millions of dollars in back Social Security, Medicare and other federal taxes. He's now accusing the company of committing a crime.

As part of the Democrat Party's jihad against defeating al Qaeda and Iranian-backed terrorists in Iraq, Waxman is trying to bring financial ruin on the company that serves a linchpin to ensure secure US diplomatic operations in Baghdad. He's also helping a big California trial lawyer sue Blackwater for at least $20 million. The trial lawyers are the largest business group that funds Waxman's party. Lawyers in general give overwhelmingly to Democrats.
