Hillary Clinton Problem with Bill Clinton and Blackwater

According to a list of 200,000 donors, former US president Bill Clinton has disclosed that Blackwater, a private security guard company to the US State Department in Iraq, gave $25,000 to the Clinton Library/Foundation.

Blackwater may be a thorn to soon to be Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. To refresh those who forgot, five Blackwater guards were charged with manslaughter over the shooting of 17 Iraqi civilians in September 2007.

This small contribution by Blackwater to the Clinton Library/Foundation may be insignificant, but every Liberal cheeseheads are in an uproar. Her confirmation could come under closer scrutiny over the appearance of conflict of interest over Blackwater and the foundation.

Right now, there is the strong possibility that Blackwater could lose its license to operate in Iraq. There is the possibility that Blackwater could get kicked out. That could cost Blackwater its contract to protect U.S. diplomats.

It will be up to Obama and Clinton to deal with the security situation of Iraq. The next secretary of state will make that call. Assuming Hillary Rodham Clinton is confirmed as Secretary of State, she will have the final say on whether Blackwater will keep its contract despite a deadly shooting last year.

This is something that caused Liberals to have a fit. It's because Liberals are afraid that Hillary will award Blackwaters contract to Halliburton. LOL.
