Re-brand, Re-name the Same Old Crap: Becomes Easy to BS the Public

Originally named: Blackwater

Renamed: Xe 
(after all the crap in Iraq)

Renamed once again: Academi
(helps keep the public confused and off balance)

This is how you try to hoodwink or BS the public, lesson 101: Keep renaming your product or same old stinky pile of dog shit by calling it anything except the same old stinky pile of dog shit. Eventually it will catch.

We have seen BLACKWATER renamed to XE and renamed again – hell it even sounds professional and kind of academic, too, and they even try to appear to be the smartest guys on the block (bullying aside that is).

Tidbits and tons of BS:

Erik Prince, co-founder of the controversial private security contractor Blackwater, later rename to Xe and now renamed again to Academi, claims that the organization could have successfully combated militant group Islamic State if the Obama administration had not “crushed my old business.”

Prince said in front of the conservative group Maverick PAC that his infamous private military firm – synonymous with the contracting bonanza that ensued after the invasion of Iraq in 2003 — would have effectively fought Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL), allowing the U.S. to hold back our military in its offensive against the group’s strongholds in Iraq and Syria.

He said in part: “It’s a shame the Obama administration crushed my old business, because as a private organization, we could’ve solved the boots-on-the-ground issue, we could have had contracts from people that want to go there as contractors; you don’t have the argument of US active duty going back in there. They could have gone in there and done it, and be done, and not have a long, protracted political mess that I predict will ensue.”

One word comes to mind when describing Prince and his brand of utter nonsense and insanity: megalomaniac.
