DynCorp mercenaries replace Academi mercenaries in Yemen


In Yemen, the Academi mercenaries (ex-Blackwater) have been killed one after the other by the coalition of Houthis and soldiers loyal to President Saleh. They have been replaced by new personnel supplied by DynCorp.

This private army will be paid for by the United Arab Emirates, to the tune of 3 billion dollars. DynCorp is the property of the investment fund Cerberus, directed by the Israëli Steve Feinberg and the ex-Vice-President of the USA, Dan Quayle.
