With the resignation of U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis recently announced, the mercenary group Blackwater USA has declared their return as President Donald Trump reduces the number of troops in Afghanistan and Syria. Blackwater announced their return in a full-page ad in the January/February print issue of the gun and hunting magazine “Recoil,” while another Blackwater contractor was recently found guilty of first-degree murder for his role in the Nisour Square massacre.

At approximately noon on September 16, 2007, a Blackwater convoy codenamed Raven 23 disobeyed orders from U.S. Embassy officials to remain in the Green Zone and instead established a blockade at Nisour Square in Baghdad. While driving his mother to an appointment, Ahmed Haithem Ahmed Al Rubia’y stopped his white Kia sedan at the checkpoint and waited for the Blackwater mercenaries to let them pass. Hiding inside the convoy’s command vehicle, Nicholas Slatten aimed his SR-25 sniper rifle through a gun portal and fired a round at Ahmed.

As Ahmed’s head exploded, his car slipped into neutral and slowly began to approach the Blackwater convoy. While attempting to stop the car, Iraqi police officer Ali Khalaf Salman raised his left arm signaling the shooters to stop firing. Inside the sedan, Ahmed’s mother, Mahassin Mohssen Kadhum Al-Khazali, clutched his bleeding head screaming, “My son! My son! Help me, help me!”

  1. So why can’t the American people see the blatant obscenity of Trump’s appointment of Betsy DeVos as U.S. Secretary of Education? Trump fills his cabinet with some of the most morally offensive individuals known to man and nobody takes notice. Trump’s supporters seem to be under extremely “strong delusion” (2 Thess. 2:11). “The whole head [meaning the government] is sick” (Isa. 1:5). And nobody seems to give a damn.

  2. WTF are you talking about? I doubt VERY seriously that religious ideology is the underlying foundation for these people. They’re not killing in the name of ANY God, they’re killing because it’s what they’re trained to do.

  3. “Murder Incorporated” indeed, Jim is spot on. With all the notoriety that the Black Water and its succeeding brand name Xe has gained in Libya, Iraq & later in Syria , Eric Princes’ Murder Enterprise has been a complete failure to deliver what it promised to his diabolic deep state masters . Other than some sporadic slaying of disenfranchised, defenseless, mostly weakened women & children Black Water has been a failure in the war theatre though surely made Eric rich thanks to US tax payers who fund these pork barrels. So long as there are General Soleimanis out there watching the line so it goes as you beat ’em once you beat ’em multiple times.
