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 MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on Thursday from the employees’ sworn declarations — is that Blackwater was guilty of using child prostitutes at its compound in Baghdad’s 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.”images

One of the statements also charges that “Prince’s North Carolina operations had an ongoing wife-swapping and sex ring, which was participated in by many of Mr. Prince’s top executives.” According to the two former employees, Blackwater supervisors in Iraq sometimes sent men back to the United States for wanting to “kill ragheads,” excessive drinking, steroid use, or failure to follow weapon safety procedures, but “Mr. Prince and his executives would send them back” with a reprimand to the supervisor for costing the firm money. Blackwater even fired “those mental health professionals who were not willing to endorse deployments of unfit men.”

Maybe another name change is in order… perhaps something a little more upbeat.

    Oh yea, Fusion. I’ll take Franks word for the holy truth, just as you have.

    #20 Ha! Too clever by half I’m afraid. Try again.

    Sure Eric is lame but who are those pesky Christian fanatics? I, perhaps wrongly, assume that you think all Christians are?

    We liberals warned you conservatives about the privatization of the military.

    You shouted-us-down as Saddam-lovin’, pro-terrorist, Bush-hating, troop-haters.

    But we where right. You where wrong.

    #34, Ah Yea,

    Oh yea, Fusion. I’ll take Franks word for the holy truth, just as you have.

    I’m glad you’ve finally come to your senses. All that selective posting just to smear one person Boss Limpdick doesn’t like was really getting lame.

    You remember the time you blamed Frank for derailing Oxley’s bill that would have regulated Fannir and Freddie? Ya, Frank was only the Ranking member and it was the White House that shit on that parade. That was funny though, “The Ranking Member can kill a Bill”.

    Well lets not go over all those times you were owned. They must be embarrassing. As long as you finally got it right, all if good.

    Thank you for changing the video, McCullough.
