    Not true.
  3. WTF is this sourcing?

    "The senior State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of a lack of authorization to speak on the matter, said the department's Diplomatic Security branch does not have the right or ability to offer any kind of immunity and did not do anything that would inhibit prosecutors if charges are to be pursued."

    So an anonymous someone who isn;t authorized to speak on the matter does so anyway and in such a way as to bail out his bosses from a PR debacle?
    Again, as in all things, I'm convinced of the good faith of this administration and its anonymous water-carriers.

    I don't think they are going to be able to hide that one.

    Um, this is the lede.

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- No immunity deal was offered to Blackwater USA guards for their statements regarding a shootout in Iraq last month that left 17 Iraqi civilians dead, a senior State Department official told CNN Tuesday.
