"The founder of Blackwater is building a secret mercenary army in the the United Arab Emirates, former employees and U.S. officials say. Erik Prince moved to Abu Dhabi under legal pressure in the United States and was hired by the crown prince to set up an 800-member force .... to conduct missions inside and outside the UAE, protect pipelines and cities and put down revolts like those sweeping the rest of the Arab world, the documents show."
