Proposed training camp in Ocotillo area. Name changed to Coyote Wells when Draft EIR submitted for public comment on 2010-01-26.

Last Month, I had contact with a fellow who had possession of a business plan of for the Wind Zero facility. I asked him to copy out some pages and email them, but he never did. (I should have copied them on the spot).

Here is the information I wrote in my notebook:

Wind Zero, Inc. (C-Corp, Aug. 7, 2006)
7345 Mission Gorge Road, Suite K
San Diego, 92120

  • John Birkler, Ret. U.S. Navy Capt.; Sr. Exec. RAND Corp.
  • Michael Berger, Getz & Assoc.
  • Pauline Getz, Getz & Assoc.
  • Paul Botte, Acct.
  • Josh Grabner, Insr.

  • Randy Kelley, CEO, 11 yr SEAL, Red Tail Corp.
  • Brandon Webb, 13 yr U.S. Navy, Channel Islands Tactical, LLC (Pt. Loma)

Anonymous Review of Wind Zero

  • AnonymousInfoOnWindZero.pdf: Anonymous review of Wind Zero presentation. This was sent to the offices of Citizens' Oversight Projects from Washington D.C., apparently sent on August 9th, 2007. This was after Brian Bonfiglio had said that Blackwater would not be represented at the Paramilitary Training Camps Forum. (He went on to attempt to get everyone else to not attend the meeting.) You can make your own decision, but it seems that perhaps this is an attempt to undercut the position of Wind Zero by Blackwater. I did not scan the last few pages as they included company private data. It was suggested that the document could be a booby trap, attempting to get Citizens Oversight in trouble if we distributed that information. Wind Zero was consulted and only "public" data was distributed. Citizens Oversight did not approve or cooperate in any way in terms of providing the video, and the comments in the document are those of the anonymous reviewer with no connection to Citizens Oversight.
