    I think Spicer is acting for the government/establishment to block your book. It might be a good idea to find as many connections as possible between him and the government/establishment and publish them.

    This may be coincidence but, bearing in mind controversy over Blackwater in particular and 'PMC's' (ie mercenaries) in general, more likely evidence of serious intent by Spicer and the US/UK military establishments.

    The 2002 article by Duncan Campbell (Making a Killing: Marketing the Dogs of War), published in the US and linked from the Pat Finucane Centre web site in Northern Ireland is no longer available at its host 'The Centre for Public Integrity' web site in the US. It must have been available recently because it is still held in the Google cache. I couldn't find it anywhere else and have therefore saved a copy of it. It is a revelation and an absolute 'must read' for anyone researching the morphing of the term 'Mercenary' into 'Private Military Contractor'. I can well understand Spicer and his associates being dead keen to suppress it.

    Aegis is an offshoot of Sandline, which was involved in the scandal of supplying arms to Sierra Leone. Its registered address in the Bahamas was at 205 Saffrey Square, which is the same address of companies linked to carousel fraud in the late nineties. Of course it could be quite unrelated. But then again maybe Aegis is a secret army for the establishment funded by the taxpayers. Anyhow, it's stuffed full of ex-army people making a killing. Interestingly,

    other VAT frauds have links to the CIA.

    with regards to craigs inaccurate comments.The attachment shown is not Aegis but believed U.S operators.And it is disenfranchised conspiracy theorists like craig that believe its better to make their tree hugging comments then respecting someone that has given their life to Queen and Country.
