Blackwater Guards Were Under Fire

Back on December 8, I had a post up looking at The Blackwater Manslaughter Case.  At the time, I wrote that "it seems unlikely that the guards, all former military men, would just open fire on civilians without a good reason." An AP report yesterday reveals that Blackwater radio logs during the incident
describe a hectic eight minutes in which the guards repeatedly reported incoming gunfire from insurgents and Iraqi police.
It looks like the prosecution's case just fell apart.
