United Arab Emirates Hires Blackwater Founder

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater Worldwide has found work for his new company, Reflex Responses, helping to build a mercenary army for the United Arab Emirates. There are questions about the legality about such a project — an American training foreign soldiers without the U.S.'s approval. Kateri Carmola, an associate professor of political philosophy at Middlebury College in Vermont, explains why this is such an explosive move.
