Recently, it’s been alleged that a private security contractor company, Blackwater, is to deploy some thousand of it’s troops at Pakistan. While many rendered that a conspiracy theory and both Pakistani government and the US embassy denied that, that’s precisely how the lending of Pakistani air bases to US planes was dealt with, which did indeed turn out to be a reality. And so, I tend to be really skeptical over it.
What’s most startling to know is that Blackwater, the largest contractor company among other private security contractor companies deployed at Iraq and Afghanistan, isn’t under the direct command of US army and acts by it’s own rules, having a rather notorious record of frequent human rights voilations.
A former employ of the company, in his declaration to a court in Virginia citing company’s involvement in murders and unlawful activities within US, alleged that Erik Prince, the owner of Blackwater, “views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe.”

Below is the video of a US journalist who’s been actively pursuing the charges against Blackwater and has been persistenly voicing his concerns over the company. However, from the response that his research generates from other media personnel, it seems US media barely considers that an important enough an issue and even if so, wants to hush up over it, considering it rather funny that Blackwater, without the jurisdiction of US constitution or the authority of military command, is out there to hunt Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan.
