    I have been wondering a few of the same things.

    And why are we still wasting so much money on private, mercenary armies?  

    Oh, that's right.... it's corporate-think.

    Why are we paying $200,000 for one mercenary soldier, while he gets paid about $120,000?  Why does this Prince guy get away with Murder?  Does he belong to the C-Street Gang?

    BTW, people who watch FOX still think the Iraq war was necessary and we had to do it.  I wish people who are simply ignorant of the facts would read up on them.  

    But then again, this is the crowd that believes a fake Kenyan birth certificate over an Hawaiian one, or even the Governor of Hawaii.  Self-absorbed people.

      Why does this Prince guy get away with Murder?  Does he belong to the C-Street Gang?

      Here's a snip from Wiki (yes, I think Wikipedia provides some useful information)...

      Prince's father co-founded the Family Research Council with Gary Bauer.[12] Prince is the brother of Betsy DeVos, a former chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party and wife of former Alticor (Amway) president and Gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos[10], son of Richard DeVos, Sr. (listed by Forbes in 2007 as one of the world's richest men, with a net worth of $2.4 billion).[13]

      And it goes on...

      Prince serves as vice president of the Edgar and Elsa Prince Foundation. Salon reports that "between July 2003 and July 2006, the foundation gave at least $670,000 to the Family Research Council, which his family founded, and $531,000 to Focus on the Family"[15] headed by James Dobson. The foundation is also a major donor to Calvin College[16], a Christian institution in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Prince also serves as a board member of Christian Freedom International, a non-profit group with a mission of helping "Christians who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ."

      Since 1998, Prince has personally donated over $200, 000 to Republican causes.[17][18][19] Prince is a donor, along with others to the Alliance Defense Fund, a conservative Christian legal group.[20] Prince had also contributed money to the Green Party of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, though this has been interpreted as an unsuccessful attempt to help Republican candidate Rick Santorum in his race against Democratic challenger Bob Casey.[21]

      Here's a few diaries written about Prince and Blackwater at BlueNC.

        I consider myself somewhat aware of what is going on but did not know about this relationship.

        Thanks for the FACTS behind him and his family!!!!!

        But I think you just scared the crap out of me....
