Blackwater 'Blood Money' Angers Iraqis

E-mail Print PDF

At least two Iraqi families of victims killed by Blackwater security guards in September tell ABC News they have refused compensation offered by the company.

Officials familiar with the case told last month that Blackwater had resisted U.S. government demands that the company pay at least $100,000 per death, claiming the U.S. government itself hasn't paid that much in similar situations.

TVNL Comment: Resisted demands? What happened to following orders? It is a war zone, isn't it? Don't they work for the government? How the hell do we let this madness continue?
