I love Black because Black is not a color strictly speaking. It is the absence of all color. When people speak of opposites, it is usually in terms of black & white. It has come to mean hidden. It is linked to the unknown or the unseen.
I heard a news about US Black Water in Pakistan. So its became xited me to know about it then I started my search and I found a terrible face of US military strategy and Black water or Xe. First I would like to share some information source from wikipidia.
Xe Services LLC is a private military company founded in 1997 by Erik Prince and Al Clark. In October 2007, the company was renamed Blackwater Worldwide and was colloquially referred to as “Blackwater”. The company announced on February 13, 2009, that it would operate under the new name “Xe”.
Based in the U.S. of North Carolina, Xe operates a tactical training facility which the company claims is the world’s largest, and at which the company trains more than 40,000 people a year, mostly from U.S. or foreign military and police services. The training consists of military offensive and defensive operations, as well as smaller scale personal security.source from wikipidia.
These all information collected and searched from different sites
(In the late 1990s Erik spent part of his inherited wealth to purchase about 6,000 acres of the Great Dismal Swamp, a vast wetland area on the North Carolina/Virginia border, now mostly a national preserve. Here he created his state-of-the-art private training facility, and his contracting company—Blackwater—is named for the peat-colored water of the swamp. Blackwater USA was formed to provide training support to military and law enforcement organizations. Overall, the company has received over US$1 billion in government contracts. Blackwater consists of nine divisions, and a subsidiary, Blackwater Vehicles.
Blackwater Worldwide has played a substantial role during the Iraq War as a contractor for the United States government. Blackwater has been paid more than $320 million out of a $1 billion, five-year State Department budget for the Worldwide Personal Protective Service, which protects U.S. officials and some foreign officials in conflict zones. In 2006, Blackwater won the renumerative contract to protect the U.S. embassy in Iraq, the largest American embassy in the world. It is estimated by the Pentagon and company representatives that there are 20,000 to 30,000 armed security contractors working in Iraq, and some estimates are as high as 100,000, though no official figures exist. Of the State Department’s dependence on private contractors like Blackwater for security purposes, U.S. ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker told the U.S. Senate: “There is simply no way at all that the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security could ever have enough full-time personnel to staff the security function in Iraq. There is no alternative except through contracts.”
There are a variety of ongoing controversies involving Blackwater Worldwide that are not in direct relation to their specific and individual operations for the U.S. government. However, their role in their work is the factor of these controversies.
in December 2006, an Iraqi politician, Ayham al-Samarie, escaped from a prison in Iraq, where he was awaiting trial for 12 criminal corruption cases. Blackwater, which he had hired for protection before his arrest, allegedly helped him escape. He said from Dubai he would return to the United States as he hadn’t broken any U.S. laws and had fled Iraq because he feared he would be killed or kidnapped. He arrived in Chicago on January 9, claiming that an Iraqi judge had ordered his release, he feared being killed if he stayed in jail, and U.S. officials had assured him he would not be extradited to Iraq.
On September 22, 2007, U.S. federal prosecutors announced an investigation into allegations that Blackwater employees may have smuggled weapons into Iraq, and that these weapons may have been later transferred to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), a Kurdish nationalist group designated a terrorist organization by the United States, NATO and the EU. The U.S. government was investigating Blackwater for these alleged crimes. On October 4, 2007, the FBI took over the investigation.
According to Prince, he stated in September 2007 that there was a “rush to judgment” about Blackwater, due to “inaccurate information”.)
These all information collected and searched by myself from different sites but questions are still remains if US establishment, Policy makers and military leaders funding world largest private security compny BSC for what and their program was kept secret from Congress L. The program is still kept a a classified secret from the American people. Yet Blackwater and the CIA saw no problem with telling foreign mercenaries about it. The criminal conspircy has leaked out. It seems that Blackwater planned to subcontract out pieces of the assasination plot to foreign mercenaries and agents. The justification for this was that you wouldn’t want to have American fingerprints on it” its being the assassination plot, because assassination is a crime. The CIA knew it was a crime. Blackwater knew it was a crime. Why aren’t the people involved in this criminal conspiracy being ordered to appear before open, public investigations by Congress? Why aren’t they being arrested and arraigned? Why does the program remain classified, if it really has been terminated? Why do US people have to rely upon anonymous government sources to tell them the version of events they want to tell them? What other criminal conspiracies has the CIA decided to keep secret from them? When there are crimes this serious in high offices of the federal government, and perhaps in the White House itself, the American people deserve to know the whole truth, and the perpetrators deserve to be brought to juctice.
Moreover According to a recent Barack Husain Obama’s and his administration exposed and announced new military strategy has retained the services of the notorious Blackwater guards to carry out drone attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan, denoting no substantive distinction from the Bush administration’s use of Blackwater now operating under the banner of Xe Services LLC to carry out ’targeted assassinations’ in PAK AFG and Iraq. Bush administration hired Blackwater USA to carry out assassinations of alleged Al Qaeda operatives. In spite of Blackwater’s well established record of random killings of Iraqi civilians, the Obama administration has retained its services in Afghanistan. A new report reveals that Blackwater has been contracted to work with the unmanned marauder drones that carry out assassinations and terrorize villages in eastern and southern Afghanistan and the border regions of Pakistan.
It raises the an other question of where the US military apparently controlled by the elected representatives of the American people ends? The Obama administration has carried over from the Bush administration Blackwater’s critical role in the use of the remote controlled marauder drones that have killed many civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The drones purported purpose is to assassinate Al Qaeda leaders. Their deployment in Pakistan is in clear violation of international law as the US has never declared war on the south asian state.
It has crystal clear that no substntive distenction between the Bush administration’s hiring of Blackwater to carry out targeted assassinations in Iraq with snipers and ambushes, and the Obama administration’s farming out to the military security firm its drone assassination program in the Pakistan theater, whose victims have consisted primarily of civilians.
Xe or Blackwater provides security to hidden bases in Pakistan and Afghanistan that carry out the drone attacks which have dramatically increased since Obama took office. Blackwater personnel also assemble and load Hellfire missiles and 500-pound laser-guided bombs work formerly carried out by the CIA. As every Pakistani know that CIA has launched its marauder attacks from a base in Shamsi Pakistan but has recently added a second secret base in Jalalabad, Afghanistan,. Most drone missions are now launched from Jalalabad, with CIA agents operating the attacks, and launching the missiles from Virginia.
Jawaid Choudhry xposed from some our hidden military sources that University Town in Peshawar is the headquarter of Black Water in Pakistan. He also claims that Black Water people can been frequently seen in the area guarding vehicles and people, clad in black suits and black glasses. He also says that the biggest embassy of America in Islamabad having thousands of employees is just another Black Water plan. He also says that Black Water is operating in Pakistan under the cover of a NGO Creative Associates
If that is true, then what exactly is the purpose and objective of Black Water in Pakistan? What they are guarding or are they planning some kind of offensive? Our politicos are dead silent over that. Our parliament is a rubber stamp, and our president is as usual on foreign trips and our premier is all-time-confused. Our opposition is luke-warm and rest of the parties are plain hopeless. The only hope against any Black Water is our security forces and the people of this country, who are ready to shed every last drop of their blood for the motherland. May ALLAH S.T protect PAKISTAN. AMEN.
why does the CIA Black water criminal assassination plot remain a classified secret?
