Aug. 3, 2009 Update from The Nation: Blackwater founder Erik Prince implicated in murder.
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.
I wrote one of the most read Capitol Hill Blue columns, "Bush’s Blackwater, an armed and deadly mercenary Christian army". Here’s the staff report to the House Oversight Cttee., just released. I keep thinking I should take this column off the front page but as a story this is more like a wound that just won’t stop bleeding… Readers are still finding the column on search engines, so I’ll keep it here awhile longer. Plus, I have a hunch folks at Blackwater may not like the exclusive C.H.B. high resolution aerial photo of their training site.
