Apparently Blackwater founder Erik Prince is not happy with having his story told by Jeremy Scahill and being labeled a mercenary over and over again.

Now he has decided to give his side of the story by writing a memoir that is due out in November.  He refutes the idea of no-bid contracts and asserts that our soldiers and country are better off having contractors in war zones.

The reactions from local press are less than positive.  It seems that by hiding out in the middle east doesn't seem to be helping him.  And the push back from constituents in West Michigan who have seen the way his family has attempted to buy off the government lately really doesn't help.  

Here's hoping that it ends up in the bargain bin.
