22. Yes, that is the one I was thinking of. There was a lot of commentary
on it at the time as we wanted the Iraqis to think we were there to help them, not to occupy their country. But, that flag gave it all away even though it was taken down fairly quickly.

And since Erik Prince is in the area now, apparently Blackwater has been working with the CIA in Pakistan and Afghanistan, it's more than likely that they are being paid by those Royals in the UAE and Qatar eg, probably by the Saudis as well, for protection against the people who are oppressed in those countries.

Here is a very good article about Erik Prince's presence in the area. On the surface the story is he is working independently of the US government, but there are certainly questions about that. And if he is he may be violating US law by training foreign troops, for which he was already fined millions of dollars here.

Secret Desert Force Set Up by Blackwaters Founder

For Mr. Prince, the foreign battalion is a bold attempt at reinvention. He is hoping to build an empire in the desert, far from the trial lawyers, Congressional investigators and Justice Department officials he is convinced worked in league to portray Blackwater as reckless. He sold the company last year, but in April, a federal appeals court reopened the case against four Blackwater guards accused of killing 17 Iraqi civilians in Baghdad in 2007.

This guy is a lunatic. He should have been jailed for what happened in Iraq, but if he's working for the US, then that will never happen.

A Christian Crusader in the ME! And I am willing to bet we will hear sooner or later, that they were involved in the coup in Libya. That is something Erik Prince could not resist.
