The good citizens of Baghdad aren’t the only ones who know what it’s like to feel intimidated by representatives of Erik Prince, founder of Blackwater, the trigger-happy private security firm which was recently re-named “Xe Services.”
Jan Schakowsky, a Democratic politician from Illinois, announced in Congress this morning that Mr Prince’s lawyers have been threatening to sue her for making what they call “defamatory statements” about their client.
Her speech accused the “heavy-handed” mercenary’s legal team of the “attempted intimidation of a member of Congress.” You can watch it below.
Prince’s lawyers appears to be upset by Congresswoman Schakowsky’s contribution to an article published by The Independent in September, in which she was highly critical of efforts to launch a Blackwater-themed shoot-em-up video game.
