The founder of Blackwater and former Navy SEAL Erik Prince offers this startling assessment, Mr. Prince explains that the Pentagon budgets $2.1 million for every active duty soldier. Blackwater, by comparison, could put a highly trained operator on the field of action for just $400,000/yr.
Regarding Benghazi, Mr. Prince believes that had Blackwater been on the job, our American ambassador would not have been killed. Knowing what I do about Blackwater, I believe Eric Prince’s view is correct. Prince supports his position by reminding National Review readers that Blackwater ran over 100,000 runs in Iraq and Afghanistan and not a single Blackwater-assigned diplomat was ever killed.
The government’s witch-hunt of a suit against Blackwater over the Nisour Square incident has been dismissed. Erik Prince, who now lives in Abu Dhabi, sets the record straight in Civilian Warriors.
