Something is wrong...
I couldn't find Bill Murray in, which movie was it, Stripes? Saying, "something is WRONG here. Something is SERIOUSLY WRONG here."
Listen to this short news piece aired on NPR this morning. It's about the FBI's investigation of Blackwater in Iraq.
The correspondent is NPR's "resident FBI expert." And part of the problem, for sure, is that she talks to us about FBI investigations like we've never watched a Harrison Ford cop movie, or even an old Bond movie, not to mention a single episode of CSI-Kokomo, ever.
Gee whiz, these FBI agents investigate crimes after they happen. And they use more gee whiz technology that is garnished from surveyors equipment...
Yeah, the part about re-enacting Blackwater's crimes into a computer simulated "video game" in order to investigate gave me the creeps too, 'specially since the killer in this instance is a gang of hired thugs paid for by OUR Defense Department:
But maybe what's really bothering me is that this story makes it seem as though someone is actually doing something about Blackwater when we all know that's bullshit.
