Another reason to not like Mitt

Apparently his campaign adviser on counter-terrorism is in charge of Blackwater:
From AP news Sept. 24

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Monday he was troubled that private security guards working in Iraq for his top counterterrorism adviser have been accused of killing civilians.

But he said he would wait for the results of an investigation before deciding on a response.

Cofer Black, who joined the campaign in April as senior adviser on counterterrorism and national security, also is vice chairman of Blackwater USA, whose workers have been accused of killing up to 11 Iraqi civilians during a Sept. 16 firefight in central Baghdad square.
