Feds Won't Charge Blackwater in Sudan Sanctions Case

Warren P. Strobel, Jonathan S. Landay and Joseph Neff, McClatchy Newspapers: "The security contractor Blackwater Worldwide tried for two years to secure lucrative defense business in Southern Sudan while the country was under U.S. economic sanctions, according to current and former U.S. officials and hundreds of pages of documents reviewed by McClatchy.... The Obama administration, however, has decided for now not to bring criminal charges against Blackwater, according to a U.S. official close to the case."
