The venture is an attempt at brand extension by Erik Prince, the well-connected founder of Blackwater, which began supplying private security services to U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan more than a decade ago. The company's initial success with Defense Department and CIA contracts was followed by a series of scandals, including the 2007 Nisour Square massacre in Iraq, in which Blackwater contractors killed more than a dozen civilians.

The article did not quite come out and declare that Bush was a weakling, and it noted that Bush's own advisers were worried about the "wimp" label. As the 41st president, Bush was anything but a wimp.
