Videos Show Blackwater in Iraq Running Over Woman, Firing into Traffic?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/04/06 09:28:30
Videos posted by Harper's Magazine show the private contractor formerly known as Blackwater in Iraq running over a woman with a car, smashing into Iraqis' cars to move them out of the way and firing a rifle into traffic.

The behavior by Blackwater seen in the videos adds even more fuel to evidence that the company "encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life."

The videos are included in a piece by Charles Glass entitled “The Warrior Class” that looks at the rise of private security contractors. Glass had been shown the videos by a former Blackwater employee.

Glass writes that the tape he was shown ended with the inscription, "In support of security, peace, freedom and democracy everywhere."

    Once you were moving you could not slow down or stop for anything. Our enemy used anything, women, children, animals, dead bodies, anything to slow a vehicle and then blow it up. They used very dirty tactics.

    Sad to say that woman wasn't too smart. Who goes into traffic like that? It doesn't make it right but I think it is a case of contributory negligence.

    I do not know what to say about the shooting. They are short clips. It is not enough to conclude anything. One of the dirty tactics our enemy used was bringing up cars and blowing them up taking other cars with them. They possibly suspected that was the case and took them out. Remember, our enemy over there mixed with civilians so you never knew, and they used very dirty tactics.
