Blackwater branches out.

In February, Erik Prince — the founder of Blackwater — launched Total Intelligence Solutions, a company that will offer intelligence services such as risk analysis to companies and governments. “The company won’t reveal its financial information, the names of its customers or other details of its business.” Its chairman is former CIA counterterrorism head Cofer Black, who is known “for his leading role in many of the agency’s more controversial programs, including the rendition and interrogation of al-Qaeda suspects and the detention of some of them in secret prisons overseas.”
