A list of recent pardons granted by President Trump included four former U.S. service members who served in Iraq and were convicted of killing civilians while working as contractors. The event, known as the Nisour Square or Blackwater massacre, left 17 Iraqi civilians dead including two children. Throughout his term Trump has also pardoned others convicted of war crimes including Army Maj. Matthew Golsteyn and 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, plus his involvement in the Edward Gallagher case. How does this reflect on America’s view on war crimes?
