Blackfive on Blackwater

Cool profile of Blackwater International.

Money Q:

Started with a few contracts to train Navy boarding parties, the folks at Blackwater became innovators. Side note: If you get one thing out of my visit to their company, it should be that they are consummate professionals. I was expecting professionalism but was surprised at the extreme high level of expertise and concern. The second thing you should understand from my trip is that they are innovators. They are innovators unfettered by the mind-numbing reams of regulations that stifles military innovation outside of SOCOM.

Of course, the anti-war left HATES Blackwater. All the more reason to be impressed by it.

Our government should have hired Blackwater to handle security at the Donkey Convention. …awarded a no-bid contract… Wouldn’t that have made the Asses crazy(-er)?!
