    Malarial disease in Iraq dubbed ‘Blackwater Fever.’

    Iraqi doctors in al-Anbar province are warning of a new disease they are calling “Blackwater Fever” named after Blackwater Worldwide, the American private security contractor in Iraq. The disease, “which is considered the worst type of malarial infection” has “nothing to do with Blackwater Worldwide” but “Iraqis in al-Anbar province have decided to make the connection between the disease and the lethal U.S.-based company which has been responsible for the death of countless Iraqis.“
