Justice Delayed? Four U.S. Security Contractors Charged in 2007 Baghdad Shooting

Four years after a judge dismissed the case, four former Blackwater security contractors were charged Thursday in the 2007 attack on Iraqi civilians in which 17 people were killed, Time reports.

The men, who were hired to guard U.S. diplomats, are accused of using machine guns and grenades at a Baghdad Square in 2007.

Among the victim were women and children, Time reported.

Defense attorneys said the contractors were firing on an ambush by insurgents.
