2008 and the Iraq war

Last week I read a report that U.S. guards employed by a private security company fired into a car carrying four Iraqi people in Baghdad.

This latest incident is sure to raise to a higher pitch the public outcry in the US as well as Iraq against these unconscionable atrocities and private security firms.
