Tycoon, Contractor, Soldier, Spy

by Adam Ciralsky
January 2010

Erik Prince, recently outed as a participant in a C.I.A. assassination program, has gained notoriety as head of the military-contracting juggernaut Blackwater, a company dogged by a grand-jury investigation, bribery accusations, and the voluntary-manslaughter trial of five ex-employees, set for next month. Lashing back at his critics, the wealthy former navy seal takes the author inside his operation in the U.S. and Afghanistan, revealing the role he’s been playing in America’s war on terror.

Blackwater’s Secret War in Pakistan

by Jeremy Scahill
The Nation
Nov. 24, 2009

At a covert forward operating base run by the US Joint Special Operations Command JSOC in the Pakistani port city of Karachi, members of an elite division of Blackwater are at the center of a secret program in which they plan targeted assassinations of suspected Taliban and Al Qaeda operatives, “snatch and grabs” of high-value targets and other sensitive action inside and outside Pakistan, an investigation by The Nation has found. The Blackwater operatives also assist in gathering intelligence and help direct a secret US military drone bombing campaign that runs parallel to the well-documented CIA predator strikes, according to a well-placed source within the US military intelligence apparatus.

  1. In my opinion the activities of Black Water and the CIA are non-human and are making things more complexed and difficult. Through such type of activities trust of the world on USA as peace lover has blown off. This world should be flower bed rather than BLOOD BED…………….. People like Eric Price and those who are using them against muslims or any other community deserve hatred and not love.

    Rest assure that peace will not prevail… if it is Iarq, Afghanistan and Pakistan are at the recieving end tommorow it will be USA to face the ever bitter consequences. Because it is law of nature that every raised on has to fall down tommorow. The higher one raised the deepest on Falls……..
