Peace Corp. - The Boston Globe

The private military firm Blackwater, recently pilloried for providing onadequate protection to its employees in Iraq as well as shooting of unarmed citizens in the wake of the Katrina disaster, now wants to go to Darfur...

Peace Corp. - The Boston Globe: "But according to J. Cofer Black, vice chairman of the private security firm Blackwater, there is another option that ought to be on the table: an organization that could commit significant resources and expertise to bolster the African Union peacekeepers and provide emergency support to their flagging mission.

A few weeks ago, at an international special forces conference in Jordan, Black announced that his company could deploy a small rapid-response force to conflicts like the one in Sudan. ''We're low cost and fast,' Black said, ''the question is, who's going to let us play on their team?'"
