Ex-employees claim Blackwater pimped out young Iraqi girls
This is just despicable. :grr:

Since the revelation earlier this week of allegations by two former employees of security firm Blackwater that its owner was complicit in murder in order to cover up the deliberate killing of Iraqi civilians, explosive charges have continued to emerge.

Perhaps the most shocking of those charges quoted by MSNBCs Keith Olbermann on Thursday from the employees sworn declarations is that Blackwater was guilty of using child prostitutes at its compound in Baghdads fortified Green Zone and that owner Erik Prince knew of this activity and did nothing to stop it.

The declarations describe Blackwater as having young girls provide oral sex to Enterprise members in the Blackwater Man Camp in exchange for one American dollar. They add even though Prince frequently visited this camp, he failed to stop the ongoing use of prostitutes, including child prostitutes, by his men.

One of the statements also charges that Princes North Carolina operations had an ongoing wife-swapping and sex ring, which was participated in by many of Mr. Princes top executives.

4. Funny thing is nothing will ever happen to any of these guys.
No one will go to jail, at least no one that matters.

5. I wish they could be convicted of human rights abuses and
jailed - but yea, they probably never will be.

15. I hear you.
But hey, this is America. We got more people in prison than anybody and the big problem is, almost all of them are poor and a lot of them are innocent.

6. What a stand-up Christian that Eric Prince turned out to be.
Anything and everything is okey-dokey though, as long as he thumps that Bible every night. :puke:

8. In the past - or currently going on? A photo of Ms Rice should be posted.
If still going on, a photo of Sec Clinton should be posted.

Sorry to be so blunt. It was by agreement that a work around of Congress that the private police were assigned to the State Dept. I have not heard that Pres Obama has changed that. I have only heard that Blackwater changed their name and are still there. Protituting and wife swapping, if all true.

12. sounds like...
...you're right.

"Prince has repeatedly insisted his company has done nothing wrong and Blackwater now renamed Xe continues to fulfill its contracts with the United States government."

10. Erik Prince (and his whole f*cking family) are sickening- there are surely even worse
revelations to come regarding Blackwater.
