Private U.S. Contractor Kills a Bodyguard of Iraqi VP for No Reason. Goes Home, No Charges.

"Nevertheless, Abdul-Mahdi told the ambassador, he hoped the contractor would be brought to justice because Iraqis would not understand how a foreigner could kill an Iraqi and be spirited back home a free man.

Seven months later, the contractor has not been charged with any crime."

HAMPTON ROADS Military (Printable Version)

These are the sorts of things that show that we are making it worse as we are trying to make it better. There are tens of thousands armed U.S. citizens running around Iraq working as private security contractors. They are not being held accountable for their actions. Can the average Iraqi tell the difference between a U.S. soldier and one of these guys?
