DeVos In-Law Implicated in Murder, Arms Smuggling, Child Prostitution

Erik Prince, brother-in-law to Dick DeVos (son of Amway founder Richard DeVos) and the head of Xe (formerly Blackwater, is implicated in the murder of potential witnesses, arms smuggling, and providing child prostitutes. Jeremy Scahill, who has extensively researched Prince and Blackwater, gives the details.

Prince views himself in an apocalytic terms:
A Virginia court also received sworn statements from former Blackwater employees [August 6, 2009] alleging that Erik Prince, the company’s founder, "views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe."

Keith Olbermann is devoting segments to Blackwater/Xe this week.

Fifteen years ago, my in-laws (Amway distributors) played audio tapes of Amway convention / motivational speeches, etc. for me during a road trip. I remember a character known as "General Prince," describing his experience as an Amway player, rising to the stratospheric levels of the organization. For a long time I have wondered if that Prince was related to the Erik Prince of Blackwater infamy. I can't find any reference to General Prince anymore, although he used to be listed on the Double Diamond list. Anyone else have information?
