Blackwater contractors found guilty of 2007 Iraq Massacre

Last week, four Blackwater security contractors were handed a guilty verdict for the 2007 slaughter of 14 Iraqis. We’ll talk about the verdict with investigative journalist and war correspondent, Jeremy Scahill. He’s author of the books Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield and Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army. We’ll ask Scahill if the verdict could change U.S. policy on using private military contractors.
