The seven-week trial focused on why four Blackwater's security guards opened fire and threw grenades into a crowded Baghdad street as they attempted to clear a path for a US State Department convoy. The US investigation found 14 people died in the incident with a further 80 injured. Lawyers for the defence said the guards were reacting to gunfire from insurgents in the Iraqi police. But prosecutors argued they had shown a grave indifference to the carnage their actions would cause and that some of them harboured low regard and deep hostility towards Iraqi civilians.

 

这场长达七周的审判,重点是弄清楚四名黑水安保公司的保安在试图为美国国务院车队开路时,为何向巴格达拥挤的街道开枪并投掷手榴弹。美国调查机构称这起事件中有十四人死亡,另有八十人受伤。辩护律师称这些保安这么做是为了反击伊拉克警察队伍中叛徒的炮火袭击。但检察官认为这些保安对自己的杀戮行为无动于衷,他们之中的一些人对伊拉克人民并不尊重,而且怀有深深的敌意。
