Blackwater has it's own CIA

What the hell is Prince doing over there, duplicating the national security apparatus of the United States?

The operation, Total Intelligence Solutions, has assembled a roster of former spooks -- high-ranking figures from agencies such as the CIA and defense intelligence -- that mirrors the slate of former military officials who run Blackwater. Its chairman is Cofer Black, the former head of counterterrorism at CIA known for his leading role in many of the agency's more controversial programs, including the rendition and interrogation of al-Qaeda suspects and the detention of some of them in secret prisons overseas.

Its chief executive is Robert Richer, a former CIA associate deputy director of operations who was heavily involved in running the agency's role in the Iraq war.

So Prince has the guy who gave us extraordinary rendition and the guy who brought us brilliant intel in Iraq. Is anyone actually contracting with this company?
