(Newser) – Blackwater founder Erik Prince is not only selling his company, he's getting ready to move to the United Arab Emirates, reports the Nation. It's apparently not for the scenery: The UAE doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US, and five of Prince's top deputies already have been indicted on charges ranging from conspiracy to obstruction of justice. Prince himself hasn't been charged with anything, but that could be just a matter of time, say legal insiders.
