As reported by Jeremy Scahill in the Nation:
... the US Justice Department appears to be on the verge of handing down the first indictments against armed private forces for crimes committed in Iraq. The reported targets of the "draft" indictments: six Blackwater operatives involved in the September 16, 2007, killing of seventeen Iraqi civilians in Baghdad's Nisour Square.
This is potentially good news, although a little late. Still, these Blackwater killers could very easily get away with it. Just because the Justice Department is drafting something doesn't mean that indictments will follow, especially given the half-hearted way they've proceeded with the investigation. Maybe they're seeing whether or not they can drag their feet into the next administration.
Even if indictments do come down, there's also the very real possibility that a few "Blackwater operatives" (slick little euphemism for hired thugs) will simply be the scapegoats for the organization's war crimes. It's not just these six individuals who need to be hauled up on charges, but Erik Prince and the whole murderous, war-profiteering, gun-smuggling Blackwater organization itself.
