Danny Fitzsimons and the Blackwater Backlash?
Posted by defensebaseactcomp on January 5, 2010
Danny Fitzsimons, is in Iraqi custody facing charges for the murder of his co workers Darren Hoare and Paul McGuigan in Baghdad on Sept 9, 2009. His chances of a fair trial in Baghdad were already in question.
Did the noose tighten as the Iraqi’s learned of the Dismissal of the charges against the Blackwater Guards in the US Courts?
Danny must be held accountable for his actions. He was there under Iraqi Jurisdiction. Will he also be held accountable for every crime committed against the Iraqi people?
Many Iraqis also held up the judge’s decision as proof of what they’d long believed: U.S. security contractors were above the law.
And how about those who so negligently put Danny back in action with a gun?
Does the DBA’s Exclusive Remedy extend to Iraqi Jurisdiction?
