'Blackwater' a.k.a. 'Academi', is the corporate front for a deceptive organization which I personally find very difficult to believe has been allowed openly to exist by the US people and their elected-government. On the contrary, what anyone with an ounce of common-sense should have immediately-recognized as an unconstitutional, and potentially-dangerous, military Order, which has required of its members an absolute subservience to the organization and its leadership above all other persons, has been sub-contracted by the democratically-elected
American government to carry-out military tasks on behalf of the American people, which previously were the sole-preserve of America's official armed forces (the commanders, and members, of which are all subject to the rule of law). Thus, 'Blackwater' has operated in a legal no-man's land, where its US-based commanders and their deployable agents, have been neither subject to US military law, nor to the laws of the various foreign lands where they have been deployed. This has led many free-thinking people to assume that 'Blackwater' has been the US Central Intelligence Agency under another name, and that it was deliberately set up by US Intelligence chiefs, to prevent, and/or divert, investigation and to isolate these same chiefs from liability.
The available evidence indicates that 'Blackwater' has been a multi-billion dollar private army, financed, and armed to the teeth, by US tax-payers, but commanded by a handful of persons apparently suffering from delusions of grandeur and self-righteousness, and who have been compelled to pursue grandiose objectives, but whom their many American, and international, victims cannot hold to account.
The latest headlines about 'Blackwater,' and the supine reaction of the mainstream media, is, frankly, terrifying

Exactly like the all-powerful commanders of the 'Amway' army, the all-powerful commanders of the 'Blackwater' army, have sent their powerless foot-soldiers on suicide missions. However, they have taken the precaution of getting them to sign (take-or-leave-it) contracts which have obliged them to abandon their rights as US citizens to take any disputes with their masters to an independent tribunal (i.e. a court of law). Instead, the poor, bloody 'Amway' and 'Blackwater' infantry, have been obliged to enter into what has been defined as 'arbitration,' but which their billionaire commanders have refused to finance.
It is a matter of public record that 'Blackwater' and 'Amway' are linked via their commanders. 'Blackwater'
instigator, Erik Prince, is married to the sister of Dick DeVos.
