What may explain part of this is as follows: I had an interesting little jaunt around some websites (although, the reports would require validation!)
regarding blackwater. It's owner, Erik Prince (an ex-Navy Seal - huh humm!) is a donator to the Republican party and worked as an intern to Bush
senior. His father was a billionaire (en.wikipedia.org...
with Prince being described as a "millionaire right-wing fundamentalist Christian from a powerful Michigan Republican family'', who also had a
problem with gays etc, (www.sourcewatch.org...
He was also a part of the Bush - Cheney 2004 campaign contributors (www.nndb.com...
A story commom to most of us regarding the CIA flights of prisioners which got so much attention in Europe was highlighted. ''Presidential Airways,
whose parent company Presidential Airways, Inc. and its sister company, Aviation Worldwide Services (AWS), are owned by Blackwater, and based in
Melbourne, Florida. It received a $2.43 million contract from the Department of Defense to provide "aircraft supports," in February 2006. Late last
year, Washington Post reporter Dana Priest revealed a network of secret CIA prisons in Eastern Europe; she received a Pulitzer Prize for her work. It
turns out, according to independent media sources, AWS and Presidential were both involved in the chartered flights''.
A comment that seems to sum where this all might be heading is as follows: ''Those who see Blackwater in a positive light should review a little
history--google "black shirt," google for the Nazi "SA" and "SS" troops. And while you are at it, google "gestapo." And remember that Hitler
was elected to office''.
''Blackwater has all the potential to become all of these. And under George Bush (or any other like minded president) we have seen how easily
torture, and secret police tactics can be rationalized. And how 9/11 has created the "threat" that Hitler found the threat "Jews, Gypsies, and
homosexuals, and eventually anyone who opposed his will. Now it is "fear" of terrorists that is being used to justify authoritarian measures being
used to "protect the American people" and preserve their liberty'' Unckel Sam - poster on the site:
In a statement to the House Committe on Oversight and Government Reform, 02nd October 2007, Prince stated that, ''all personnel working on
Department of State contracts must receive a security clearance from the US Government of at least 'secret' level.
Jeremy Scahill also had a bestseller book called 'Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army'.
He cites its strength in an interview: You tell me what nation in the world has operatives deployed in nine other countries around the world, can
boast of a force of 20,000 men to call on at a moment’s notice, has a fleet of aircrafts. I mean, the nation of Costa Rica doesn’t even have a
military. So in the case of Blackwater, we’re talking about a heavier force than some nation-states of the world''
So where is all this police training / zero-tolerance agenda heading? The police agenda appears to be just scraping the surface of Bush's private
army. If further research were to link this private army to the Bilderbergers, or other secret organisaiton, that would be an intersting thread
