The Blackwater guards have asserted their justification for the shootings despite killing multiple men, women and children. Liberty, age 38, stated in an interview “I regret any innocent loss of life, but I’m just confident in how I acted and I can basically feel peace with that.” The shootings that took place in Baghdad have been one of the more painful parts of the war in Iraq and has tainted the U.S. reputation for treatment of civilians.
