When in doubt

Hire a lobbyist firm... Heck, hire two...three:
Controversial private security firm Blackwater Worldwide “has ramped up its lobbying representation on Capitol Hill” by hiring the law firm Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice to “lobby the government on contracting and other issues.” “Womble Carlyle is the third lobbying firm to be hired by Moyock, N.C.-based Blackwater since October.”
What do mercenary lobbyists lobby for? More wars?

Oh good grief. Thanks for the info, Steve. I'll update.

And map, I think we hired out for our kinder gentler ruthless killers and they turned out to be just ruthless killers. Now we don't know how to fire them....
