On Thursday, Politico's Ben Smith noted an additional finding in the leaked documents.

"The Republican National Committee is planning to raise $60,000 at a fundraiser next month at the North Carolina compound owned by the company formerly known as Blackwater," Smith writes, adding that the "the committee will hold a gathering of its 'Young Eagles' -- major donors under 40 -- at the U.S. Training Center in Moyock, North Carolina April 16, an astute reader points out."

Ben Smith adds, "The RNC document doesn't say what the donors will be doing at the North Carolina compound, which describes itself as the nation's 'premier weapons and tactics training facility.'"

An article posted at the center's site describes a Blackwater course Basic Shotgun" which is taught there.

After wolfing down lunch and several cups of coffee I met up with D.H. and my other classmates at a range that fully simulated breaching a room. Inside these rooms steel targets presented perpetrators and hostages. The pop-up heads on the body-shaped targets were managed by D.H. from a control panel behind us. Our mission was to go from door to window in every room and shoot the heads of the perpetrators in the shortest amount of time. /
