Will we ever finish cleaning up the Boy King’s messes?
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. The former employee also alleges that Prince “views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe,” and that Prince’s companies “encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life.”
Just another Sociopath for Jesus. Nothing to see here.
Blackwater Founder Implicated in Murder [The Nation]
Figures, those fucking bastards have done plenty of awful sh…
Nah. Blackwater/Xe/SPECTRE is the paragon of corporatistic morality. It would never do such a thing like that. Nope. Not one damned bit.
Linque is stuque.
Where’s Angela Lansbury when you need her?
No. The A-Team.
“We’re doing everything we can to obstruct justice and cover up Blackwater’s crimes against the people of Iraq and the United States,” John Roth, the spokesperson for the US Attorney’s office in the District of Columbia, continued “so it’s not likely that you’ll ever read about this again, and there certainly won’t be any major media coverage or convictions. Did you know that Jon & Kate is back on tonight?”
@SanFranLefty: I double-checked the link in Google, but The Nation may have broken a big story — I can’t reach their site either.
@SanFranLefty: I think they’re overwhelmed by everybody linking to it (including RawStory and memeorandum).
This new Evony chick looks like a man, baby.
I love The Nation. So seventies-lefty.
The most surprising thing to me about this story is it surprised me. Thinking about it, I can’t imagine why I should be surprised. It’s been pretty clear for years now that the whole apparatus of the federal government was hijacked by the UberThug in Vice President’s clothing, who saw to it that only the ruthless would get government contracts or civil service appointments.
Just tried to link to the story through Huffington Post. Nothing happened. Oh, please let them succeed in nailing him if in fact he is guilty.
The snakehandler base will shriek for Prince to be awarded the Medal of Freedom, like Tenet.
Blackwater story at alternet:
This is the only portion of this terrible, terrible story that gives me hope, but then again it was said by the original pie-in-the-sky politician, Kucinich.
In addition to Blackwater, we should be questioning their patrons in the previous administration who funded and employed this organization. Blackwater wouldn’t exist without federal patronage; these allegations should be thoroughly investigated.
He love to joust at windmills, doesn’t he?
If homicidal gummit hellfare queens like Goldman Sachs & Blackwater/Xe aren’t enough to get people to figure out how to stop paying their taxes, then what would be?
Not Guilty By Reason of Rich Republicanism.
Five bucks says Blackwater was behind the death of the D.C. Madam.
@SanFranLefty: Your Unified Scandal Theory is showing.
@flippin eck: Exactly. Our only hope for justice is a BushCo operative being handed a picture of someone dying of rectal syphilis and a copy of Brides magazine finally folding and telling the whole story about Blackwater and KBR kick-backs to Bush, Cheney and Co. Then we can meet for a toast under the gallows.
@Tommmcatt Floats: He’s just so precious, I want to pinch his cheeks and give him a butterscotch every time he speaks.
@Jamie Sommers: If he and his wife really cared about America, Elizabeth would volunteer to appear on TV in long, slow-mo make-out sequences with Michelle Obama.
@FlyingChainSaw: Charge $19.95 for the DVD and we’d have universal health care for all.
@SanFranLefty: I was thinking $25 for pay per view, every few weeks or so. They really need each other and America needs them.
@FlyingChainSaw: If they loved America they would do it.
@SanFranLefty: All of us should have our patriotism so tested.
