BLACKWATER IS PULLING OUT OF SAN DIEGO!!!
Here's what's on the UT website dated 3/7/08:
Blackwater Worldwide officials have announced they are pulling their application to build a training center on an 842-acre site in the East County community of Potrero.
The North Carolina-based company dropped off a letter to the county planning department today notifying officials of their decision not to pursue plans for the project on a former chicken and cattle ranch.
"Although our project would have brought a great benefit to San Diego County, - providing local, state, and federal law enforcement with access to low-cost superior training facilities while bringing much-needed jobs to the area - the proposed site does not meet our business objectives at this time," states the letter from Blackwater vice president Brian Bonfiglio.
