Trump pardons US contractors convicted in Iraq massacre

Trump pardons US contractors convicted in Iraq massacre 1


In 2014, a US federal jury found four former Blackwater Worldwide contractors — Nicholas Slatten, Paul Slough, Evan Liberty, and Dustin Heard — guilty over the massacre of 14 Iraqi civilians – including 9- and 11-year-old boys – and sentenced all to long jail terms.
President Donald Trump pardoned all four of them.
Seventeen Iraqi civilians, including 9- and 11-year-old boys, were killed when private contractors from the US security firm Blackwater opened fired in Baghdad's Nisour Square in 2007.
Fourteen of those killings were unjustified under the rules of the use of deadly force by security contractors, according to an FBI investigation.

    Presidential pardons: a hold-over from the time of kings and queens. Has no place in a democracy.

    Wish joe Biden could un pardon people when he comes in office then all those people trump has pardon should be in prison as well as trump himself

    • Iraq could request they be extradited to Iraq to stand trial there for murder and Biden could grant the extradition and order them arrested and sent to Iraq to stand trial and such a trial would result in their execution prior to the end of 2021. Iraqi justice tends to be a bit faster than American justice.

  9. Child killers pardoned. America descends to a whole new low.

  11. Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army is a book written by Jeremy Scahill.
    “Erik Dean Prince (born June 6, 1969) is an American businessman, former U.S. Navy SEAL officer, and the founder of the private military company Blackwater USA, now called Academi. He served as Blackwater’s CEO until 2009, and as its chairman, until its sale to a group of investors in 2010. Prince now heads the private equity firm Frontier Resource Group, and is chairman of the Hong Kong-listed Frontier Services Group.
    He is the brother of U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
    In 2016 Prince contributed $250,000 to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, and $100,000 to Make America Number 1, a Trump-aligned super PAC helmed by Rebekah Mercer.”

  20. They call them security guards black wild water was hired assassins plain and simple and they did not have to follow by any military rule plain and simple and now Trump has just proven that they are hired assassins without law and the man that owns blackwater is our education secretary Betsy DeVos’s brother
