We’re going to fight this every step of the way,”   according to the Post.During the 10-week trial, federal prosecutors argued that the defendants opened fire without provocation, firing wildly intothe crowded area because they harbored deep-rooted hostility towards Iraqis. The government also claimed the guardslater boasted of their indiscriminate shooting.The 2007 shooting, which happened at Nisur Square in Baghdad, scandalized the Iraqi public and raised tensions with theUS four years into the Iraq war. The guards were accompanying a State Department convoy through the streets of Baghdad when they opened fire at a traffic roundabout. The Blackwater troops reportedly faced no provocation, yet theyopened fire on a mother and her son in a white Kia vehicle and then continued to fire indiscriminately.
