“Xe” stands for Xecute?

Blackwater, the mercenary services corporate giant (since the Bush administration’s promotion and use of it in Iraq/Afghanistan) recently changed its name to Xe in a rebranding effort. Look for another name change in the near future…

Four U.S. contractors affiliated with the company formerly known as Blackwater Worldwide fired on an approaching civilian vehicle in Kabul this month, wounding at least two Afghan civilians, according to the company and the U.S. military.
The off-duty contractors were involved in a car accident around 9 p.m. on May 5 and then fired on the approaching vehicle, which they believed to be a threat, according to the U.S. military. At least some of the men, who were former military personnel, had been allegedly drinking alcohol that evening, according to a person familiar with the incident. Off-duty contractors aren’t supposed to carry weapons or drink alcohol.
