Blackwater issued death threat to get investigation dropped

The State Department dropped a 2007 investigation of security contractor Blackwater after the lead investigator was threatened by the company's project manager. Daniel Carroll reportedly told State Department investigator Jean Richter that he could kill him and get away with it because they were in Iraq. The exchange and subsequent dropping of the investigation occurred just weeks before the controversial killing of 17 Iraqi civilians by Blackwater guards. RT's Manila Chan discusses the newly revealed incident and other issues surrounding security contractors with former Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman (D--NY).
