US: Blackwater used grenades on unarmed Iraqis


www.breitbart.com

WASHINGTON (AP) - Blackwater Worldwide security guards opened machine gun fire on innocent, surrendering Iraqis and launched a grenade into a girls' school during a gruesome Baghdad shooting last year, prosecutors said Monday in announcing manslaughter charges against five guards.

A sixth guard involved in the attack cut a plea deal with prosecutors, turned on his former colleagues, and admitting killing at least one Iraqi in the 2007 shooting in Baghdad's Nisoor Square. Seventeen Iraqis were killed in the assault, which roiled U.S. diplomacy with Iraq and fueled anti-American sentiment abroad.

A grenade in a girls school?
Holy smokes!

If this turns out to be true, then it is truly a shame. Certainly lends credit to the accounts of Iraqi citizens complaining of attacks, rapes, and beatings. As well as accounts from Americans working and/or serving in Iraq right now. As if some people went over there with an axe to grind and the hearts and minds of the people were the last thing on their mind.

I am sure this is only scratching the surface of the true extent of the abuses of the Iraqi people at the hands of representatives of the US.

I hope justice is served but I am skeptical.
