Now called Xe (or maybe something else by now....)(Praetorius infoms me they are NOW called...(Accedemi)
Blackwater is becomming almost another arm of ole Uncle S.
Do the citizens of Amerika want these thugs and hired killers on our payrolls?
Are you sure these are the faces of Amerika that you would wish the peoples of these nations to be impressed by?
To me , seeing the Armed to the nuts bodyguards which the State department employs.....
Escort some dignitary or other........
The pictures look more like some CARTEL MOBSTER and his RETINUE OF KILLERS>(see link(, than any goverment representative.
The Actions of blackwater in Iraq, and elsewhere, have resulted in the death and wounding of more innocent people than threats by a wide margin......
Amerika has to turn a 180 attitude wise in a hurry, if they want to remain an influence upon the worlds cultures and peoples in the next 50 years.....should there be 50 yrs left.......
The obvious hold these private corporations have on the goverment is the threat of Blackmail........
Being sucked into and privy to...the most sensitive of discussions and circumstances, these operators, though "private" are well aware of how they can compromise the goverment over anything they may do....
This amounts literally to a licence to kill.....anyone at all......anywhere off the CONUS.
Need i remind everyone that the New Owners of XE(Blackwater)Now (Academi)
Is/are MONSANTO.................................

And if That doesent make you wonder....maybe this will.IT DESERVES ITS OWN THREAD>>>>

I am fully against any private standing army.
They hold allegiance to only cash.
Very bad, yes very bad.

Yet another tentacle of the Octopus using Blackwater.

I assume you're familiar with this book? How to Get Away with Murder in America: Drug Lords, Dirty Pols, Obsessed Cops, and the Quiet Man Who Became the CIA's Master Killer

Blackwater/Xe/academi is a domestic terrorist organization supported by the US Government. I would not be surprised if they would change their name soon again once it is found out that they are doing another despicable act.

Of course they operated under the US Government. They were a civilian security force that were supposed to augment the military forces in the area, which would have been impossible to do without discussion with and input from the US Government.

Its not just that they work for the government, it is their dual-legality that makes them dangerous.

They can not be sued by civilians because they are a military contractor,


They also can not face military tribunal because they are civilan contractors.

So no law can prosecute them, especially not an Afghanistan or Iraqi court.

Kind of like the federal reserve, government enough to counterfeit money, private enough to avoid real audits.

Soon all wars will be fought by proxy armies such as Blackwater, F.S.A. Al Qaeda etc. This way the governments can keep their hands clean and benefit from the rewards.

Blackwater got it's real start by being contracted by the CIA. Being that the employees of the organization were all former special forces and were no longer in the military, they were perfect for the job.

It was them and not government employees that were hired to conduct several key assassinations and renditions in Iraq and Afghanistan prior to the invasion of either country. They have also been suspected of doing the same thing in Pakistan and Iran. If they were to have been caught or killed, the CIA and US Government would have full deniability.

After the invasions, the scope of Blackwater's duties changed. Now they had to do actual security work. That is where things got a bit hairy. All of a sudden, they were supposed to play by the rules.

So you end up with these contractors shooting civlians. These contractors raping, pillaging and plundering. Trading guns and equipment that they shouldn't. Stealing millions of dollars worth of goods and cash.

It's a lot like World War 2 era Europe.

Just so you know Blackwater has a mind of it's own.

They trained Canadian soldiers without informing the US government and paid for it.
