NYT Calls Security Contractors In Iraq "Mercenaries"

Have they been doing this for long? I've never read of it before, but then I avoid the NYT.

It appears the Nutrootification of the NYT is complete:

ecretary of State Condoleezza Rice refers to the lack of legal accountability that allows mercenaries working for the American government to kill Iraqis without fear of prosecution as “a lacuna” in our law.

...

The administration should withdraw all of these private armies from Iraq, and while it does that, Congress must act swiftly to ensure that American justice applies to all those who remain.

Am I to understand that when a NYT reporter actually bothers himself to leave his hotel, his security is being provided by -- as his paper terms them -- "mercenaries"?
