Blackwater Worldwide: Not So Welcome In San Diego

Blackwater Worldwide was planning to open a training facility outside San Diego. Not so fast, says the mayor of San Diego.

On Monday, Sanders told his development services director, Kelly Broughton, that Blackwater’s permits, which had been issued by city staff, will require more scrutiny than the staff-level review.

Broughton then sent a letter to Blackwater vice president Brian Bonfiglio stating that “no certificate of occupancy will be issued” until the company’s plans are approved by the San Diego City Council and Planning Commission.

Sanders’ action was prompted by a legal opinion issued Friday by San Diego City Attorney Michael Aguirre that found problems with Blackwater’s permits.

Controversy is nothing new for the boys from Blackwater.
