#4 the company was accused of atrocities, particularly a 2007 incident in Baghdad where 20 people were killed.

From what I remember, terrorists hid among civilians -- as they tend to do -- and attacked a convoy Blackwater was guarding. They returned fire, and some civilians died. There was a war crime committed, by the terrorists, who chose to attack from the cover of non-combatants.

However, the racists that run the world cannot believe non-Europeans of being responsible for any act, so they could never place the blame on the terrorists.
