armysteps1 210x131 Setting the Record Straight: Did Monsanto Really Buy Blackwater (Xe)?

There has been a great deal of publicity over the potential purchase of Blackwater (now known as Academi, and Xe before that) by mega corporation Monsanto. While the two seem to be a great match, as they both fail to consider the morality and consequence of their actions, it seems that Monsanto is only involved with Blackwater in infiltrating activist groups who are opposed to the biotech giant — an operation quite sinister enough. The truth of the matter is that Academi (Blackwater) was purchased by private investors, and the heavily sourced article written by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation actually says nothing about Monsanto buying Blackwater.

What the articles does say, however, is that Monsanto and Blackwater are indeed working together to target anti-Monsanto activists and organizations. Known as far back as 2010, it was unveiled that Blackwater’s client list included Monsanto, Chevron, Walt Disney and many more. According to documents obtained by Scahill, it was also revealed that Monsanto was willing to pay upwards of $500,000 in order for Blackwater to join anti-Monsanto activist groups and infiltrate the ranks. Furthermore, a number of internet-based tactics could be utilized as incognito PR for Monsanto, who undoubtedly knew opposition would mount against their GMO crops as more individuals became aware of the dangers.

Amazingly, the document stated that Monsanto was “concerned about animal rights activists and that they discussed how Blackwater “could have our person(s) actually join [activist] group(s) legally.”

Of course this occurred back in 2008, and Monsanto admitted in e-mails that the relationship lasted until around 2010 — near the time the information came to light. Raw Story reports:

“In an… e-mail to The Nation, Wilson confirmed he met Black in Zurich and that Monsanto hired Total Intelligence in 2008 and worked with the company until early 2010. “

Even though Monsanto may not have purchased Blackwater, their relationship with them remains quite clear. Both organizations are noted for their crimes against humanity, and they really do have a twisted synergy of sorts so it is quite easy to see how the topic became viral. While they may not be owned by the same individuals, one thing is clear: the relationship between these two companies is enough cause for alarm.

    @T Bagg: Easy enough. So all we need is a grassroots movement big enough to purchase the f… company.

    I know a guy who worked for Blackwater until about four years ago who still uses a Blackwater email address. When I asked him about this, he said it's similar to students who were assigned a university-related email address, and who got to keep the email address after graduation. I call B.S. My guess is it's just one more example of how careless and unprofessional Blackwaster is–and also assume they're screening all these email accounts for 'intel'. Nonetheless, Blackwater needs to meet its end.

    I debunked this story more than a year ago at RedGreenAndBlue.org:

    "But somewhere along the line, Silvia Ribeiro , a Spanish-speaking researcher on environmental issues, read that article and misunderstood what the author meant by “become an ‘intel arm’ and took it literally. She published a Spanish-language article in La Jornada , it got translated into English by (of all things!) Pravda online , conspiracy websites picked up on it, and well-meaning people proceeded to post the news all over the Internet (usually without indicating the source)." (http://redgreenandblue.org/2010/10/16/too-much-of-a-bad-thing-monsanto-did-not-buy-blackwater/)

    … But I also noted a few months later that Blackwater /XE had been sold to a faceless holding company, so there was really no way of knowing WHO actually owned it (http://redgreenandblue.org/2011/01/04/did-monstanto-finally-buy-blackwater-theres-no-way-to-know/).

    Ultimately, it doesn't matter whether Monsanto owns a mercenary army, or merely hires it out. What's scarier is how they're dividing us so we can't fight them as a unified front.

    Yesterday someone I trust told me “Monsanto has bought whole foods!” That rumor probably started because someone ran a headline about Whole Foods “selling out” to Monsanto, and now there’s disinformation flying.

    If we’re going to beat these bastards, we can’t eat each other alive. We’ve got to stay united and work together.

      Hey Jeremy! The links are no longer working for your first 2 articles! Are they posted somewhere else, or did you take them down intentionally??

    America says it stands for freedom, yet at every turn works openly and quietly for cenralization of any and all essential services. The people who work to advance this agenda obviously prize their paycheck more than their country's well being. Clinton began shipping jobs overseas, and twenty years of high unemployment has made America's brawny heroes into chirping toads, begging for their next payment of blood money. Ain't life grand? Even firefighters who heard multiple explosions coming from the low floors of the WTC towers on 9/11 have been silenced. Comparmentalization, bribery, job insecurity, threats, are all doing their part to keep a strong citizenry off balance and confused. Their evil plan is working, so far.

    Monsanto= SATAN. Once Satan has control of your food supply, you will be forced into either eating and being chipped, or starving. The good news is you can buy stock in SATAN.

    Thanks for not doing your homework and letting us that spread the word look like idiots. Thats the last time I try "spreading the word" of this site.

    • Trish

      James, NaturalSociety never reported the rumor — they simply FIXED the disinfo.

  • Cassandra

    The person who originally 'misinterpreted' Scahill's article is Sylvia Ribiero of ETC environmental group, funded by the Ford Foundation. She advocates UN control over geo-engineering (chemtrails).

      Wow, simply amazing…
