Founded in 1997 by Erik Prince, a former Navy SEAL who left the company in 2010,[4] the firm has been notorious for various high-profile scandals, including allegations of fraud and death threats, weapons trafficking, and involvement in the massacre of civilians in Iraq.

Controversy
Business at Blackwater boomed after the 9/11 attacks. According to an October 2007 congressional memorandum, Blackwater's government contracts grew "exponentially during the Bush Administration, particularly since the start of the war in Iraq."[5] In 2000, the corporation only earned $200,000 in federal contracts, compared with $25 million in 2003 and $1 billion in late 2007.[6] In 2007, Prince reported that at least 90 percent of Blackwater's revenue came from government contracts,[7] two-thirds of which were no-bid.[8]
Much of Blackwater's revenue during this period came from security contracts for guarding high-profile officials and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. From 2001 through 2006, Blackwater had $832 million in two State Department contracts for providing "protective services in Iraq."[9]
According to the New York Times, "Blackwater's rapid growth and the State Department's growing dependence on the contractor led to unbridled hubris. The paper cited former employees from the period who complained that Prince had forced them to swear an "oath of allegience" to the company and its mission, "the same one required of those entering the United States military. One former employee reported that it "was kind of like pledging allegiance to Erik [Prince]."[10]
...
"'Blackwater's work with the CIA began when we provided specialized instructors and facilities that the Agency lacked,' Prince told me recently, in response to written questions. 'In the years that followed, the company became a virtual extension of the CIA because we were asked time and again to carry out dangerous missions, which the Agency either could not or would not do in-house.'"[29]
...
Complicating matters, Blackwater apparently provided some services to the government free of charge and without a contract, for which Prince cited his "patriotic duty" in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. "Blackwater carried out countless life-threatening missions for the CIA," Prince complained. "And, in return, the government chose to prosecute my people for doing exactly what was asked of them."[30]
Observers have also accused Blackwater of mixing its business interests with its executives' religious motivations. According to Scahill, "What is particularly scary about Blackwater's role in a war that President [George W.] Bush labeled a 'crusade' is that the company's leading executives are dedicated to a Christian-supremacist agenda."[31] Prince is a staunch Catholic; Joseph Schmitz, another top Blackwater executive, said in 2004 that "no American today should ever doubt that we hold ourselves accountable to the rule of law under God.
...
Founder Erik Prince was born to a wealthy conservative family in Michigan with deep ties to right-wing politics (his late father Edgar helped set up the Family Research Council, a Christian Right think tank and lobby group where Erik interned in college).[48] Staunchly conservative, Prince has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Republican Party, religious groups, and conservative organizations (often through the Edgar and Elsa Prince Foundation), including to the American Enterprise Institute[49] and the Alliance Defense Fund.[50]

It will continue guarding U.S. officials in Iraq but its future will be focused on training, aviation and logistics."[43] Prince told the AP, "The experience we've had would certainly be a disincentive to any other companies that want to step in and put their entire business at risk."[44] Blackwater, according to the AP report, "expanded its aviation division, which provides airplane and helicopter maintenance and also drops supplies into hard-to-reach military bases. ...
