Murder Allegations Against Principal Of Barbados Corporation – Blackwater and Greystone use Barbados to support arms dealing & mercenary operations

“While the private military/security industry rejects the characterisation of their forces as mercenaries, Blackwater executives have turned the grey area in which they operate into a brand asset. The company has been quietly marketing its services to foreign governments and corporations through an off-shore affiliate, Greystone Ltd, registered in Barbados.”

… Jeremy Scahill, author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army

Shouldn’t Barbados feel at least morally responsible for the activities of corporations formed under our laws?

All facilitated by the world of offshore corporations in Barbados.

    This seems to be more of a concerted effort by Keltruth and BFP to expose a weakness in the Barbados Offshore Business model than to report on the alleged criminal activity of an AMERICAN Corporation.

    This AMERICAN corporation has a registered affilliate company in Barbados but it is still an
    AMERICAN corporation operating from the United States of America.

    I wonder who is Blackwater’s biggest client?

    Blackwater has also been paid over $1 billion by the State Department for “diplomatic security.”

    Poor little Barbados getting licks becuse Big Amurcan company doing foolishness.

    Well, that settles it then, old friend!

    We pointed out the murdering, lawbreaking, government toppling American machine was using our country as a base, but I guess that should be no worry to Bajans as long as the money keeps rolling in. Not to mention the arms deals through our financial institutions.

    Okay, got it!

    BFP your title would have been better if it read

    ” Murdering, Lawbreaking, Government toppling American machine was using our “Barbados” as a base.

    uh just trying to get wanna to ease up a little.

    Barbados needs all the help it can get so doan mek we look like demons.

    Watch out fuh dem hurricanes dat out dey in de Atlantic.

    Hi Hants,

    Thanks for your advice and we’ll talk about it at the Friday meeting.

    So far it continues to be our strategy and belief that integrity will not come to the Barbados system of government unless and until the international community takes notice and starts asking questions about the abuses perpetrated by the elites of our incestuous government, courts and business sectors.

    We want the international community to ask embarrassing questions about our system.

    Do you really think that any Bajan government would pass integrity legislation on the basis of domestic demands only?

    BFP I agree with you. We need to keep the pressure to create a better Barbados and ITAL is still vital but I have a real concern that the recession is worse than it appears.

    It will be a few years before the Brits will return to buy million dollar properties and the American and Canadian offshore business is in decline.

    Barbados has two life lines. Tourism and offshore banking. These two industries need our help so we should be guarded in our discussions.

    We have to be careful not to “cut our nose to spite our face.”

    I agree with Hants and I agree with BFP too. What is best in the long run I have no clue.

    I have a feeling that President Obama is fed up with offshore banks and the Swiss banks are going to surrender names to the IRS.

    Der Speigel Names Head of Blackwater “Hitman” Squad

    Follow-up to the report, yesterday. Der Spiegel has named A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard, former CIA Executive Director of Operations (02/98-09/04), as the principal manager of the “Killing Program” allegedly set up in 2002 within Blackwater.

    SNIP

    If these reports are accurate, Krongard would have been acting in a covert operational capacity that is not normally consistent with his administrative position at the Agency. If Krongard was in fact working for Blackwater previous to his appointment as a board advisor on September 5, 2007, it would have been in some other, still unrevealed, capacity. The Blackwater assassinations program was not revealed to Congressional oversight, which is a serious violation of law. Furthermore, it is normally illegal for an active duty CIA officer to have outside employment, particularly to maintain any direct, outside financial interests with an Agency contractor.
