    After the Blackwater fiasco

    Iraq to end immunity from prosecution

    It is an interesting two fingers to the US who are alleged to have offered immunity to the Blackwater jockeys who killed 17 civvies a couple of weeks ago.

    See earlier BBC link here

    Wonder how the US administration will deal with the Iraqi approach to this one?

    Could this be Iraqi officials finally standing up for themselves? It will be a popular policy in the eyes of the locals and hopefully will remove a lot of the cowboys operating. Might even be a turning point in the IGs own self worth and determination.
