John Ashcroft is Blackwater’s new ethics chief

Seriously.  From WIRED:

The consortium in charge of restructuring the world’s most infamous private security firm just added a new chief in charge of keeping the company on the straight and narrow. Yes, John Ashcroft, the former attorney general, is now an “independent director” of Xe Services, formerly known as Blackwater.

First order of business? Cover up all those nude statues.
