Blackwater involvement In Iraq

         Backwater, a private defense company, is presently being trialed for multiple accounts of murder and excessive violence toward innocent civilians in both Afghanistan and Iraq. They also played a large part in the events that led to the civilian massacre in Baghdad late July of 2011. When they were asked to comment on it, they simply stated that you make mistakes and the men who were involved would be dealt with appropriately. They will face extended punishment but no such actions have been taken to even reprimand these men. The men of Blackwater are a large reason why we still have hostility from the Middle East.

I wish to know how you, the students and faculty of AHS feel about this topic. Feel free to comment and I will respond to you as soon as I can.
