Mr. Erik Prince, the founder of BlackWater, now XE, is motivated to engage in misconduct by two factors: First, he views himself as a Christian crusader, tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe. To that end, Mr. Prince intentionally deployed to Iraq certain men who shared his vision of Christian supremacy. Knowing and wanting these men to take every opportunity to murder Iraqis. Many of these men used signs based on the Knights of the Templar, the warriors who fought the crusades.
