Blackwater buys Brazilian-made fighter plane

June 2nd, 2008 | by Steve O |

This should end well.

The sale was apparently approved, the Estado report noted, by Brazil’s president in a deal negotiated with the U.S. government.

Brazilian law prohibits the sale of arms to companies or for use in existing conflicts.

The newspaper reported that Blackwater president Gary Jackson said the plane would be used for training.

OK, so they only bought one plane for training but they don’t own any others ::wink:: ::wink:: to put that training to good use, what on Earth will they use the training for?

I don’t know about you but I feel a whole lot safer with the knowledge that our government is letting private corporations buy fighter planes. This just took those no-knock searches to a new level.

You know who else let a paramilitary group buy fighter planes?.

    Dang… I guess we should have seen this coming. Can’t turn this into a Police State without a private Army.

    Looks to me like the guy who owns Blackwater wants to fly a fighter in his free time.
