it's about TIME(!). . . five nisour square, baghdad blackwater mercs indicted. . .




. . .'twas a long-time comin' but the winds seem,
finally, to be shifting -- unfurling a flag
that offers some semblance of the return to
the rule of law, and egalitarian justice.

the new york times is reporting that five
of the blackwater mercs involved in the
killing of 17 iraqis -- some unarmed, and
several clearly ordinary civilians -- in
baghdad's nisour square -- some parts
of which were caught on tape, apparently,
have now been indicted. damn. that's. right.

a sixth is reportedly plea-bargaining. that's decidedly
bad news
for the other five, as his proffered testimony will
likely implicate the others -- and thus, a very-solid
federal criminal case -- with the real potential for multi-
decade (30 year) prison sentences -- is built.

the case will rely on a law that focuses felony penalties
on the gangland-style use of machine guns in committing
any other crime -- in this case, the unlawful killing of
at least 17 unarmed iraqi civilians. rather ironic, that, no?

background, here. more to come, finally.
