Quite the Piece’s of Work

Yesterday Jeremy Scahill had his latest article, Blackwater Founder Implicated in Murder, published over at The Nation. Might I suggest you wander over and take a peek. Both, the article itself and Erik Prince, are quite the piece’s of work, each in their own right.

Appearing in one of the “sworn statements” Jeremy’s article is concerning;

“Mr. Prince intentionally deployed to Iraq certain men who shared his vision of Christian supremacy, knowing and wanting these men to take every available opportunity to murder Iraqis. Many of these men used call signs based on the Knights of the Templar, the warriors who fought the Crusades.”

“Mr. Prince operated his companies in a manner that encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life. For example, Mr. Prince’s executives would openly speak about going over to Iraq to ‘lay Hajiis out on cardboard.’ Going to Iraq to shoot and kill Iraqis was viewed as a sport or game. Mr. Prince’s employees openly and consistently used racist and derogatory terms for Iraqis and other Arabs, such as ‘ragheads’ or ‘hajiis’.”

Subsequently Jeremy has made appearances, discussing what he wrote, on Countdown with Keith Olbermann and Democracy Now. While you’re at it, check them out, too…
