Former Blackwater President Indicted on Weapons Charges

The former president of Blackwater Worldwide has been indicted on weapons charges.

An indictment issued Friday charges Gary Jackson along with four others, including former general counsel Andrew Howell and former executive vice president Bill Mathews. The charges against Jackson include a conspiracy to violate firearms laws, false statements and possession of an unregistered firearm.

The charges open a new front of the government's oversight of the sullied security company. Several of the company's contractors have previously been charged with federal crimes for their actions in war zones, but the company's executives have so far weathered a range of investigations.

Jackson left the company in a management shakeup last year. Blackwater changed its name to Xe Services around the same time
