The reclusive founder of Cerberus, Stephen Feinberg, reportedly told his investors in a letter earlier this year that he hated all the attention the company was getting.

"We do our best to avoid the spotlight," wrote Feinberg, "but unfortunately, when you do some large deals, such as Chrysler and GMAC, it is hard to avoid."

Despite the controversy, however, Blackwater was recently renewed for a $1.2 billion private security contract with the State Department. The one-year extension is worth an estimated $240 million.


Smells a bit fishy... and why does this guy opt to "avoid the spotlight" with the company? Hmmmm... Feinberg... Feinberg... a Jewish name if I'm not mistaken


Like I said, something smells fishy. Just not sure what.
