Erik Prince of Blackwater - Private Security Firm Founder
While the intent of this blog is to publish small posts and provide links to news articles about security and safety in Maine and across the country; sometimes it can't help itself in veering into more exciting terrority such as the overseas security contracting world. The magazine Vanity Fair has published an in-depth article on Erik Prince - the founder of the well-known security firm called Blackwater (but now known as Xe). The article in the January 2010 issue is entitled "Tycoon, Contractor, Soldier, Spy" and is very informative about Prince and the Blackwater firm. If you have any interest in private military corporations then this story is for you.
