The owner of Xe Services, the company formerly known as Blackwater, is writing a book that will allege officials in the Clinton and Obama administrations "approved of his most sensitive and controversial operations," says a report in the Washington Post.
The Post's Jeff Stein cites two unnamed sources who say Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, is hurrying to sell his company before he can go public with a book that takes aim at the Democratic Party.
One of the sources told Stein that Prince and his friends "think this will destroy the Democratic Party in the elections."
The source, who is described as having a "business relationship with Xe," said Prince had "given his people three weeks to complete the sale of the company and the book will be released then," in time for the November elections.
Only the problem is nobody seems to give a crap about Blackwater anymore, and let's be perfectly honest, we've already got America refusing to give a damn about the fact Obama's got his own assassination squad working to take out terrorists like Bin Laden and hey, even Americans who may be helping him. That's been public knowledge for months now and nobody seems to give a damn.
I kind of fail to see what Prince is going to pull here, but it should be more depressing than anything else. Or darkly funny in an unintentional manner. Still, there are a few folks who are a bit antsy about this, according to Jeremy Scahill at The Nation (who has been following Prince for a while now and has written a book on him.)
We'll see if ol' Eric here can deliver.
