    President Bush's private army may have dodged the law for several years, but today, that dodging is over with 4 convictions.

    Move over Leavenworth "heros", you got 4 more soldiers of misfortune joining you!

    Justice was finally served upon these private "heros" for the murderous acts they committed in Iraq in 2007.

    I hope they enjoy the confines of a high security prison.

    Don't celebrate too soon. They won't be in for long (if at all after all the appeals).

    Shouldn't even have been a trial. Nobody is charging the isis cowards....why should Americans be any different

    THE USA paid mercenaries to go to IRAQ and use force while not having any responsibilities to follow rules of engagement. They shot and killed dozens of innocent people. These are not the last of trials to come.

    Just like our our military personnel who committed crimes against humanity were put on trial and convicted.

    We are suppose to be better than ISIS, and when they "act" lke ISIS, then as a civilized society, we have a responsibility to prosecute them.

    ISIS isnt a nations fighting force. They are a ragtag bunch of militants recruited from all countries and armed by the USA and allies.

    If our defense industry hadnt had so much SURPLUS of weapons of war, these :censored2:s wouldnt have a pot to piss in..

    Instead, they are driving Humvees, and APC"s while shooting american weapons and marching in american boots.

    Blackwater hired a bunch of murderers to masquerade as private security, and they chose to SHOOT FIRST and ask no questions.

    They got what they deserved.

    Are you suggesting there is or shold be no difference between ISIS fighters and the US military?

    Then the US military was right not to help in Benghazi because that was a State Department mission?

    Rules of engagement are a joke. Shoot first, ask questions later. I'd rather be in jail than in a box in the ground.

    Mercenaries are needed, we should hire some now and encircle ISIS and just kill ANYONE in that circle, collateral damage isn't really a big deal.

    There is a HUGE difference. However, if nobody is charging the ISIS animals, why do the US forces get charged? Because they killed some Iraqi's? Seems like an unnecessary trial there

    What would you like to do? Charge ISIS members as members of a criminal conspiracy and prosecute them in the Hague?

    Hired by the State department.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    A bunch of wanna-be Soldier of Fortune mercenaries are in no way associated with our armed forces.
