One Answer Only +

49 Across- Puts together hastily: scaresup

Blackwater USA saw the Iraq war as an opportunity to scare up some big contracts, even if it had to drop recruiting standards (there's just never enough good mercenaries when you need them) and accelerate training (that chapter on when to avoid deadly force was boring anyway). Now, despite our best efforts in Mercenary Monitors Mocked, Blackwater is out of the news, apparently with no serious penalty or loss in status. CEO Erik D. Prince remains a mystery - no one even left a comment explaining his decision to drop out of Annapolis. Don't be afraid, anonymous comments will be published.
