Blackwater/Xe is getting off, again, of doing illegal shit. Obama says he won’t charge them with violating Sudan sanctions. Instead they are going to face a fine.
Now these are the same guys who stole 500 AK47 meant for the Afghanistan militia, by signing for them ‘Eric Cartman’.
Blackwater has done a ton of shit we know about, and most likely a ton of shit we don’t know. Iraq kicked all Blackwater/Xe employees out of the country because of the amount of shit they were doing, and the US never held them to task for it. Letting them get away with it seems to be the US’s MO right now. In fact not only letting them get away with it, but profiting from it as well, they just got hundreds of millions of dollars worth of new contracts.
Now this gets me to thinking why are they doing this? Well one of the things they have been doing is a lot of hush hush shit for the CIA, stuff the US probably does not want to get out into teh public. So will Blackwater/Xe EVER face criminal charges? Probably not. They could set off a nuke and get away with it because they are in a position to hold the US government over a barrel.
This is why privatizing your national security is a bad idea.
