A Turd is a Turd is a Turd
“Say goodbye to Xe. The company formerly known as Blackwater — the world’s most infamous private security corporation — has jettisoned the name it chose in its 2009 rebrand.

Academi of Offensive Driving and Shooting
Academi of Covering up the Rape of Coworkers
Academi of Wrap Around Ballistic Shades
Academi of Overbilling
Academi of Arrogance

@IanJ: I saw some Blackwater brand pants at the sporting goods store today. Fucking cargo pants are $59.

@redmanlaw: I did ten days of training with a handful of ex-Blackwater dudes and dudettes: driving, orienteering, shooting and tactical medicine (my favorite). They all wore those overpriced cargos, with a slash blade clipped into the right pocket. I get my BDUs for $59 at Cabelas.
