Blackwater (Xe) Kills Its Critics

A former Blackwater employee and an ex-US Marine who has worked as a security operative for the company have made a series of explosive allegations in sworn statements filed on August 3 in federal court in Virginia. The two men claim that the company's owner, Erik Prince, may have murdered or facilitated the murder of individuals who were cooperating with federal authorities investigating the company. The former employee also alleges that Prince "views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe," and that Prince's companies "encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life." Read the rest of the report here.

P.S. And we're the good guys? Only to the terminally delusioned. You know, the ones you can hear chanting USA, USA, USA... at golf events. My bet is that when FOX has to report this, they'll add the disclaimer that they've used for all crimes committed in our name in this "war on terror": innocent until proven guilty, how dare they accuse without proof our heroes defending our country, and other similar drivel.
