"BLACKWATER or Xe = No Difference..."

Blackwater changed their name to Xe (pronounced Zee) in case you didn't know. But, as long as their mission continues, it won't matter what they do or get away with, but it should.

The latest from an author, Jeremy Scahill, an expert on Blackwater/Xe. From this piece we can see a trend that should scare the living crap out of anyone. To wit:

"The source, who has worked on covert US military programs for years, including in Afghanistan and Pakistan, has direct knowledge of Blackwater's involvement. He spoke to The Nation on condition of anonymity because the program is classified. The source said that the program is so "compartmentalized that senior figures within the Obama administration and the US military chain of command may not be aware of its existence."

Read the rest of Scahill's report and check his other articles here. Then pitch in and help track this story.
