I wouldn't want Bill Gates owning that service either. It's not his cup of tea and who knows what all he could do with it and the info. He would have access to that classified information and files.

Not a good idea...namely coming from a guy who could/can change ANYTHING in that system at any time. He could sell it to enemies for crying out loud.

You'll/we/they will have a hard time proving or knowing it.

That is as evil as it gets..For Monsanto who has engineered seed that will only germinate once and then the plant will generate a sterile seed is disgusting..In normal times a subsistence farmer could buy seeds...grow a crop - save some of the new seeds then use those seeds for the next seasons crop...NOW the farmer has to go back to Monsanto every year to buy MORE seeds...as for Blackwater..that is like a corporation hiring Hell's Angels for security...EVIL ...just pure evil...I hope they all choke in their sleep.

I don't know that I would say that w/o investigating.
However, the article also goes onto say.

However, Scahill has copies of emails from Cofer Black after the meeting with Wilson for Monsanto, where he explains to other former CIA agents, using their Blackwater e-mails, that the discussion with Wilson was that Total Intelligence had become “Monsanto’s intelligence arm,” spying on activists and other actions, including “our people to legally integrate these groups.”

Both Blackwater and Monsanto are private companies. There is nothing to substantiate that Monsanto acquired Blackwater ( now Xe Services) beyond the original report.

I did come across a link reporting that Bill Gates of Monsanto had purchased Blackwater.

The Koch Bros are the big $ behind the tea party. It's better to pay for ads to refocus people's attention on the goofy Obama phone lady than what's really going on at Monsanto.
