Blackwater founder moving to UAE

Hmmm. Jeremy Scahill, who is a one man anti-Blackwater team reports that the founder of BW Erik Prince is moving to the UAE and Scahill posits this might be due to its lack of an extradition treaty with us. 

Sources close to Blackwater and its secretive owner Erik Prince claim that the embattled head of the world's most infamous mercenary firm is planning to move to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Middle Eastern nation, a major hub for the US war industry, has no extradition treaty with the United States. In April, five of Prince's top deputies were hit with a 15-count indictment by a federal Grand Jury on conspiracy, weapons and obstruction of justice charges. Among those indicted were Prince's longtime number two man, former Blackwater president Gary Jackson, former vice presidents William Matthews and Ana Bundy, and Prince's former legal counsel Andrew Howell. 

The Blackwater/Erik Prince saga took yet another dramatic turn last week, when Prince abruptly announced that he was putting his company up for sale.

I can confirm that the deal for BLACKFIVE to buy Blackwater and turn the compound into an adult theme park is still in negotiations.
