Liveblogging Of Blackwater Hearing

Marcy is liveblogging the House Oversight Committee's hearing on Blackwater over at FDL. Part One and Part Two available here. You can stream C-Span 3 here. More to come...

The Gavel is putting up videos as quickly as they can. Here are Chairman Henry Waxman's opening remarks:

AP is reporting that the FBI is asking the committee to curb questions on the Sept. 16th killing of 11 Iraqis so as to not inhibit their investigation. Or maybe they just don't want us to know...

On another note, Christy is liveblogging the Goldsmith testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

UPDATE: Here's Dennis Kucinich grilling Blackwater CEO Erik Prince. icon Download   QT Later.

I also want to remind you of a little fact that doesn't seem to make it traditional media: Blackwater's VP is advising Romney's campaign.
