If they are US citizen they are under US law not UCMJ and the and the US congress just proved it. They answer to US courts if they are US citizen, and should be.

Lucky

your last post is contrary to what has been reported if you are talking about Blackwater. According to all reports they are not under the UCMJ (military law), US law or Iraq law.

And they are under US laws and protection. If they were involved in Illegal activities they will be prosecuted under American law and are protected under the constitution. And if the are British they are a British problem. Sorry they are needed and protected under the US Constitution and are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. TBR they answer to US government.

And you are wrong again. Private security agents worked in WWII as well as Korea and Viet Nam. Groups like Air America in Thialand were hired by the CIA to move cargo and medical supplies to the country side in Cambodia. In Siagon two groups cant recalled their name were there to protect visiting dignitaries. Hired by the CIA. Groups like black water are a neccessary evil in these situations. And ask the VP of Iraq how he feels about them. He was under their care for the same attack this report was about. Cant win for losin with you libs. So you would rather our troops protect them I thought you said our troops are over stretched? make up our minds will yeah? Again if it was not Black Water it would be our troops under the microscope, I prefere Black Water my self.

yada yada yada..someone shoots at you and the person you are protecting, you shoot back...everyone is over reacting because the iraq govt did not like it even though they still are not sure what happened.

If you read the article, the military is concerned because the behavior of the contractors reflects poorly on US troops, which makes the troops less safe.

That's a problem.

much do to about nothing...if you were one of those being protected I would think you have no problem. The military and Congress were not at the fire fights, they cannot say what happened...

Blackwater Faulted In Military Reports From Shooting Scene

http: // www*washingtonpost*com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/10/04/AR2007100402654*html?hpid=topnews

Seems as if the military has some problems with at least this incident.

"Got any proof they do this? Blackwater and other who do this work are out standing soldiers and have to date not lost one person under their protection. They do what the military can't, besides if the military had this task they would need min. 6000 troops and liberals would be screaming about how our troops should not be protecting foriegn dignitaries. Is that not true?"

First, they are not soldiers. They may be former soldiers. They are private citizens employed by a company. They are not under the jurisdiction of the UMJC, or Iraqi law, or American law. Doesn't seem that anyone has figured out what law they are accountable to.

Second, our soldiers, the real ones, have been protecting foreign leaders in these situations for most of our history. IMHO, that is an appropriate use of our troops. And I have never heard anyone, left or right, say anything different.

Remember the British mercenaries that filmed themselves rolling down the highway shooting random cars?

Is that what we stand for?
