Rohrabacher, a supporter of Blackwater crimes... and the Taliban

Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher of Huntington Beach, who was the keynote speaker when Blackwater opened its compound in North Carolina in the late 1990s, defended Blackwater's crimes in Iraq today.

Erik Prince, the president of Blackwater, was an intern in Rohrabacher's Capitol Hill office in 1990 and they have since become friends.

The Congressman, who also defended the Taliban during the 90's, attacked Democrats who pushed for congressional inquiries into incidents in Iraq where Blackwater security guards killed Iraqi civilians.
