It should come as no surprise that noted mercenary war profiteer, likely war criminal, Black Water founder, and Betsy DeVos’ brother Erik Prince is cashing-in (Fair warning: W$J Paywall) on the evacuation from Afghanistan:

“Erik Prince, the American defense contractor, said he is offering people seats on a chartered plane out of Kabul for $6,500 per person.”
