Nisoor Square Massacre: Blackwater Guards to be Charged

Five of the Blackwater employees who opened fire in Baghdad's crowded Nisoor Square on 16 September, 2007, “have been told to surrender to the FBI by Monday to face federal manslaughter and assault charges connected to the shooting deaths of 17 civilians” (ABC).

Granted, this is a good move by prosecutors, but I’m cynical about how this will turn out.
