News Talk Online August 10, 2009: Blackwater Allegations And Getting Killed, Not Cured In Hospitals

My first guest on News Talk Online on today was Harper Magazine contributing editor Scott Horton who has investigated and written a book on Blackwater to talk about allegations that the company's owner, Erik Prince, has, in the name of Christianity, targeted Muslims in Iraq. Prince is under investigation for allegedly murdering or facilitating the murder of an Iraqi who was cooperating with federal authorities investigating the private security company.

Second guest was Hearst Newspapers senior enterprise reporter Eric Nalder who was part of the team that wrote "Dead By Mistake" - a wide ranging national investigation that concludes that an estimated 200,000 Americans die needlessly from preventable medical mistakes and hospital infections each year.
