Blackwater a result of politicizing the justice department?

The dismissal of charges against the Blackwater security personnel who were accused of murdering 17 Iraqis a good example of why it is important to have good people working in the US justice department.

I wonder how many of those justicedepartment lawyers were hired for their ideological qualifications in the former Bush admin instead of for their legal credentials. Base on the NYT report, this seems bordering on prosecutorial misconduct.
