You havent heard much about blackwater as much recently for two main reasons:

a)Blackwater no longer exists, they are now Xe.
b)Blackwater, as has come out recently, was a gov't asset. Meaning the gov't is going to help them fly under the radar.
c)Many of their 'troops' as can be supported by their own web site, have been relocated back to the Americas, as their goal is to expand domestic operations(again, by their own words).

And, surprise, surprise, their website is suddenly down!
