When I went to Afghanistan, there was a crew of these guys. I had never heard of Blackwater.... These guys were former Special Forces. They had done their time, they had done their duty.... These guys... were secure, and they were armed to the hilt.... And you thanked God they were there.
So let's review: They're professional (former SF). They're patriotic (all having given a chuck of their lives to military service). And they did the job well. Can we ask for anything more?
