Blackwater, the private security firm that operated death squads for the Bush administration in Iraq, has changed its name to reflect its new ownership.
“The message here is not that we’re changing the name,” said Ted Wright, who came on as the new company CEO in June. “The message is that we’re changing the company, and the name just reflects those changes. We have new owners, a new board of directors, a new management team, new location, new attitude on governance, new openness, new strategy – it’s a whole new company.”
As part of the new openness policy the company will be called “Soulless Mercenary Swine Who Slaughter People For Money And Really We Don’t Care What The Reason Is”.
