US promises stricter regulation of private security firms after Blackwater verdict

The US State Department offered assurances on Tuesday that it had strengthened the rules governing private security firms in the wake of a 2007 shooting in Iraq in which 14 people died. A former Blackwater guard was sentenced to life in prison and three others received 30-year sentences on Monday for their roles in the mass shooting in which 17 people were also injured. The four ex-employees of the US private security firm had been convicted on an array of charges ranging from first degree murder to voluntary manslaughter stemming from the incident in Baghdad’s Nisour Square.

Nicholas Slatten was sentenced to life in prison at a Washington DC federal court on Monday1 after being found guilty of first-degree murder over the shooting in Baghdad s Nisoor Square2. Fellow former Blackwater security guards Paul Slough, Evan Liberty and Dustin Heard were jailed for 30 years and one day for manslaughter and other charges. Patrick Martin, the prosecutor, described the shooting as an unprovoked ambush of civilians and said the men have not shown remorse or taken responsibility.

Defence lawyers countered that the men were targeted with gunfire and shot back in self-defence with guns the State Department had provided them for safety. “We respect the court’s decision in this case and have no comment regarding the findings of the decisions here,” acting State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters. But she added that after “the tragedy there, the department took a number of steps to strengthen oversight of private security contractors such as moving quickly to improve investigative policies and strengthening procedures for use of force.”

The aim had been to put in place a “more robust oversight” as well as making sure “we had better rules and regulations for private security contractors.” But she stressed that the State Department, which has its own diplomatic security bureau, would still need to work with private contractors in some places “for a variety of reasons.” The killings in Baghdad on September 16, 2007 deepened Iraqi resentment of America’s involvement in the country.

In final statements, all four defendants protested their innocence and asked for leniency.
