5 Blackwater Security Guards Charged In 2007 Shooting Spree

17 Iraqis were killed when Blackwater tried to block off an intersection in Baghdad's Nisoor Square back in 2007.
Now five of the guards have been charged with multiple counts of manslaughter.
A sixth has already plead guilty in a plea deal and is awaiting sentencing.

That doesn't bode well for the other 5, I can tell ya.

This was a real mess, conflicting reports have conflicting views of what actually went down that day but 34 people were either wounded or killed outright, and all of those were unarmed civilians, women and children included.

It is going to be interesting to see what transpires in this case.
