CIA Director Leon Panetta has canceled a contract with the former Blackwater security firm that allowed the company's operatives to load missiles on Predator drones in Pakistan.


Oh wow. That’ll show ‘em.

Panetta canceled the contract earlier this year and the work is being shifted to government personnel, a person familiar with the contract said Friday.


Separately, CIA spokesman George Little said Friday that ''at this time, Blackwater is not involved in any CIA operations other than in a security or support role.''

Riiiiiiight. I think the carefully chosen word here is 'support'.

Recall that Blackwater was the instigation for the Falluja horror.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
