"Since the fall of 2003, New-Fields Exhibitions, a Dubai based marketing company with a corporate office in Washington has organized over a dozen conferences promoting opportunities in Iraq's reconstruction, security and oil sectors.

...The firm's corporate dwelling...five blocks east of the White House...Three unannounced visits from a National Security News Service reporter yielded three identical responses: no one from New-Fields was in. The leasing company employee who would only identify herself as Dion, said that most New-Fields staff is located overseas - the Philippines she thought. But when reached on the firm's D.C. area customer service line, project manager Carla Torres claimed that New-Fields has a Washington-based staff of approximately 100.


...But oil conglomerates and construction firms are not the only industries with an expanding presence in Iraq. One of New-Field's most reliable sponsors is the mercenary firm that investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill has dubbed "Obama's Blackwater," the security constractor Triple Canopy.

South Carolina Site Selected for Triple Canopy Training Center



Integrated Security Solutions Company to Expand Training Programs

HERNDON, Va., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Renowned for its excellence in tactical training, Triple Canopy, Inc. today announced that it plans to build a multi-purpose training center in Wallace, South Carolina.

As an integrated security solutions company, Triple Canopy is uniquely qualified to meet the increased demand for training services from U.S. government agencies, state and local law enforcement agencies, non- governmental organizations as well as private corporations.

Triple Canopy CEO Lee Van Arsdale said, "The company has earned an excellent reputation within the military, civil and law enforcement markets for its select training processes and instructor cadre. This multi-purpose training complex will enable Triple Canopy to expand its robust training programs."

Located in Marlboro County, South Carolina, the Triple Canopy Training Center is expected to meet the increased demand for the training of military, law enforcement and homeland security personnel.

"Working in partnership with Marlboro County officials, Triple Canopy is looking forward to making a positive economic impact within the community," said Van Arsdale.

Hubert Meggs, chairman of the Marlboro County Economic Development Partnership, said, "We are excited to welcome Triple Canopy to Marlboro County. We look forward to the job opportunities that this facility will provide. Many agencies had a part in making this happen and we would like
to thank the Marlboro County Council, Marlboro County Transportation Committee, Pee Dee Regional Council of Governments, North Eastern Strategic Alliance (NESA)
and South Carolina Department of Commerce."

F.S. "Butch" Mills, Jr., executive director of the Marlboro County Economic Development Partnership, congratulated Triple Canopy for deciding to locate the training center in the county and is grateful for the support the county received from a coalition of local, regional, state and federal government organizations.

"This is a prime example of South Carolina's willingness to help businesses locate operations in our state. These jobs and capital investment come to our county at an opportune time," Mills said.

A global, veteran-owned security company, Triple Canopy is expanding its domestic footprint and anticipates working closely with the community to develop an advanced training center.

"We are so very pleased and happy to welcome our new neighbors to the Wallace area of Marlboro County," said Jean McLean, the chairperson of the Marlboro County Council. Rep. Douglas Jennings, Jr., echoed the county's
support for the Triple Canopy Training Center, "On behalf of the citizens of Marlboro County, we are most grateful that Triple Canopy has selected our county for its new facility," Jennings said. "They will be a great corporate citizen for Marlboro County and the State of South Carolina."
