    :lol:

    This f'ed up human drama never ceases to surprise me. At least he didn't continue his singing career.

    Whats the point of even having this position?

    Blackwater is just a bunch of goons who like to kill brown people (including unarmed women and children)

    I've had the pleasure of spending time with some of Blackwater/Xe's shooters over the years. Some of the best guys to shoot and party with. Some of even fewer that I'd want at my back in a fight.

    Very simply. There are some of us who understand that we need people who are willing to do whatever is necessary to accomplish a goal. As the first Commanding Officer of SEAL Team Six (Lt. Cmdr. Richard Marcinko - USN Ret) was fond of saying.... "Verily thou art paid for thine RESULTS, not thine METHODS. Therefore destroy your enemy by any means necessary before he destroys you." The Marquis de Queensbury's rules do not apply to the sort of work that Xe/Blackwater does. Never have and never will. They're paying for exactly what they need.... someone with the political clout and pull to be able to sweep whatever they need to do under the rug when necessary.
