Blackwater boys don’t mix with the rest

Yesterday I wrote about Jeremy Scahill’s explosive revelations that Blackwater are operating covertly in Pakistan and a reliable journalist contact who spends considerable time in the country passed this on:

You know there’s a heavily guarded pub in Peshawar called the American Club where these Blackwater dudes hang out. No one else goes there, they’re too scared shitless. Mind you the pub is like heavily fortified, I mean it’s like crazy over the top fortified. Nevertheless, the paranoid mercenaries keep their cars running while they’re having a beer in case they need to bail out in an emergency. Very American.
