Here’s Eric Prince, CEO of Blackwater, telling Congress why his company doesn't have to follow protocols of disclosure:
"We're a private company and there's a key word there — private."
Eric may own a private company, but he’s operating with PUBLIC FUNDS, in a PUBLIC WAR, that draws on troops paid for and maintained by the AMERICAN PUBLIC. Oh, and the Constitution says we have a right to look at your books when we spend from the PUBLIC TREASURY.
Eric Prince might want to keep this in mind unless, of course, he can get the private sector to pay his bills.
