Blackwater founder makes new pitch for mercenaries to take over Afghan war

Blackwater founder Erik Prince has released a video on Youtube calling for a change in policy concerning the Afghan war, away from a “conventional” military approach and towards a smaller fusion force of CIA operatives and 6,000 private contractors. Prince has remained active in private security/military services since leaving Blackwater (now known as Acedemi) in 2010, advising a wide range of governments and organizations on conflicts and investment activities across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
