Although plans for this training center are not yet complete, to some degree this appears to be on the fast track.

There are opinions about Blackwater Worldwide on either side of the political spectrum, encompassing the full length and breadth of the United States, not to mention several foreign countries that have been severely impacted by Blackwater's so-called “Black Ops” in the past.

Jeremy Scahill, one of the best-selling authors has written extensively about Blackwater Worldwide.
Among his considerable literary and journalistic credits Jeremy Scahill has written a powerhouse book about his insider knowledge of what he called the world's largest terrorist organization.
