Ashcroft, Blackwater, ugh

I learned this past week that our former Attorney General serves on the board of Academi. They are the latest incarnation of Blackwater, the military contractor & supplier of security forces who has risen from the ashes to fly again as often as the Phoenix. You can bet they will have military contracts for the forseeable future.

It looks like the US has a separate contractor economy paid for with tax dollars behind the National Security shield whose positions are only held by those who are on board or who have played ball.

It seems like a bribe to me, and they aren't even trying to hide it.
