Interesting stuff, although you can't see much.  These guys are mercenaries in almost every sense of the word, but at least they're on our side.  I'm sure their story will be told one of these days.

I doubt it, besides he fact that 5 of them are back on active duty in the mil, various SOF's unit's and the other 3 still work for BW, ie no books any time soon.

Dang Mough, you have some awesome connections. I always figured you were SAS...but maybe you are former SAS working for Blackwater, or maybe Dyncorp, or maybe a British PMC, or maybe you were never SAS...the mystery deepens :)
 
Seriously, I would never consider Blackwater to be Mercenaries, alot of the have been employed by US government in some way and they play by the rules. I personally would rather stay in my SOF unit, but the money is tempting I'm sure.

Well, nobody is perfect!
 
And to throw in my 2 cents, PMC's are all mercenary scum, but then thats just my opinion (funnily enough that opinion, despite my being polite and backing up my claims got me banned from milphotos.net).
