Two former Blackwater employees have made shocking allegations against Blackwater, the private military company now known as Xe. Murder, destruction of evidence, weapon smuggling and death threats - our government needs to investigate and FIRE BLACKWATER NOW.
In sworn statements filed in federal court on August 3rd, the two men accuse Blackwater founder and former CEO Erik Prince of murdering or facilitating the murder of people suspected of cooperating with federal investigators; Blackwater executives of destroying incriminating emails, documents and videos; Blackwater management of threatening potential whistleblowers with violence; Blackwater of smuggling illegal and unlawful weapons into Iraq; and suggest CEO Prince "views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe."
Blackwater has engaged in these alleged heinous actions while being paid with U.S. taxpayer money, in the name of the American people. These allegations are horrifying. We the people demand that President and the U.S. Congress immediately:
fire Blackwater - end all contracts with Blackwater / Xe
investigate all of these shocking allegations;
pass legislation to end the use of mercenary forces such as Blackwater
