US mercenaries Blackwater’s private CIA

This video from the USA is called Blackwater Under Fire.

From an article by Jeremy Scahill, in United States weekly The Nation:

Blackwater‘s Private CIA

Posted June 9, 2008.

The notorious mercenary company now offers spy “services” to Fortune 500 companies, for the right price.

This past September, the secretive mercenary company Blackwater USA found its name splashed across front pages throughout the world after the company’s shooters gunned down seventeen Iraqi civilians in Baghdad’s Nisour Square. But by early 2008, Blackwater had largely receded from the headlines save for the occasional blip on the media radar sparked by Congressman Henry Waxman’s ongoing investigations into its activities. Its forces remained deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and business continued to pour in. In the two weeks directly following Nisour Square, Blackwater signed more than $144 million in contracts with the State Department for “protective services” in Iraq and Afghanistan alone and, over the following weeks and months, won millions more in contracts with other federal entities like the Coast Guard, the Navy and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
