I'm Too Xe For My Record Of Shooting Iraqi Civilians

Blackwater has changed its name to Xe. Not that 'Blackwater' was a very friendly name or anything. But it's generally unwise to choose a name that sounds like a shadowy group of ruthless thugs from a movie. Yes, even if you're a shadowy group of ruthless thugs in reality.

And not one of those earnest geo-political Oscar-bait movies either. One of the slick, directed-by-a-music-video-director, ultraviolent movies where the whole thing is just an excuse to watch shit get blown up.

Yeah, they'd be called "The Xe Corporation" and they'd be led by a guy with an eyepatch or nine fingers or something.

Ha! Yes, exactly!
