(Blackwater) Erik Prince: Tycoon, Contractor, Soldier, Spy

Keep in mind that in BOTH Afghanistan AND Pakistan, versions of Blackwater are representing the U. S. Do you want them in your country? Do you want them representing you? Then, by all peaceful means say NO to the surge and end the US Occupations. Letters, Calls, Faxes, Petitions, Vigils, Staged Drama - Find some way and means to say NO MORE. (See the post below for some simple ACTIONS NOW)

He is clenched-jawed and tightly wound. He cannot stand down. Waiting in the security line at Dulles airport just hours before, Prince had delivered a little homily: “Every time an American goes through security, I want them to pause for a moment and think, What is my government doing to inconvenience the terrorists? Rendition teams, Predator drones, assassination squads. That’s all part of it.”
