POTUS Makes Good On Threat-U.S. Strike Kills Senior Iranian Commander Soleimani

Again, you attempt to steer everyone away from the point. 

Who was the private contractor working for, and what was he doing?  My bet is that he was employed by Acadami.  Do you recall why Blackwater changed it's name to Acadami?

---
Academi is an American private military company founded in 1997 by former Navy SEAL officer Erik Prince[2][3] as Blackwater,[4] renamed as Xe Services in 2009 and known as Academi since 2011 after the company was acquired by a group of private investors.[5] The company received widespread notoriety in 2007, when a group of its employees killed 14 Iraqi civilians and injured 20 in Nisour Square, Baghdad for which four guards were convicted in a U.S. court.[6][7]

Academi provides security services to the United States federal government on a contractual basis. Since 2003, the group has provided services to the Central Intelligence Agency. In 2013, Academi subsidiary International Development Solutions received an approximately $92 million contract for State Department security guards.[8]

In 2014, Academi became a division of Constellis Group along with Triple Canopy and other security companies that were part of the Constellis Group as the result of an acquisition.[9][10]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academi


The Nisour Square Massacre occurred on September 16, 2007 where employees of Blackwater Security Consulting (now Academi), a private military company contracted by the US government to provide security services in Iraq, shot at Iraqi civilians, killing 17 and injuring 20 in Nisour Square, Baghdad, while escorting a U.S. embassy convoy.[1][2][3] The killings outraged Iraqis and strained relations between Iraq and the United States.[4] In 2014, four Blackwater employees were tried[5] and convicted in U.S. federal court; one of murder, and the other three of manslaughter and firearms charges.[6]

Blackwater guards claimed that the convoy was ambushed and that they fired at the attackers in defense of the convoy. The Iraqi government and Iraqi police investigator Faris Saadi Abdul stated that the killings were unprovoked.[7][8] The next day, Blackwater Worldwide's license to operate in Iraq was temporarily revoked.[9] The U.S. State Department has said that "innocent life was lost",[10] and according to the Washington Post, a military report appeared to corroborate "the Iraqi government's contention that Blackwater was at fault".[11] The Iraqi government vowed to punish Blackwater.[12] The incident sparked at least five investigations, including one from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.[13] The FBI investigation found that, of the 17 Iraqis killed by the guards, at least 14 were shot without cause.[14]

In December 2008, the U.S. charged five Blackwater guards with 14 counts of manslaughter, 20 counts of attempted manslaughter and a weapons violation but on December 31, 2009, a U.S. district judge dismissed all charges on the grounds that the case against the Blackwater guards had been improperly built on testimony given in exchange for immunity.[15] Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki harshly criticized the dismissal.[16] In April 2011, a U.S. federal appeals court reinstated the manslaughter charges against Paul A. Slough, Evan S. Liberty, Dustin L. Heard and Donald W. Ball after closed-door testimony. The court said "We find that the district court's findings depend on an erroneous view of the law,"[17] A fifth guard had his charges dismissed, and a sixth guard (Jeremy Ridgeway) pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and attempted manslaughter.[3] On January 6, 2012, Blackwater settled a lawsuit filed on behalf of six of the victims for an undisclosed sum.[18] On October 22, 2014, a Federal District Court jury convicted Nick Slatten of first-degree murder, and three other guards (Slough, Liberty and Heard) guilty of all three counts of voluntary manslaughter and using a machine gun to commit a violent crime.[6][19] On April 13, 2015, Slatten was sentenced to life in prison, while the other three guards were sentenced to 30 years in prison.[20]

On August 4, 2017, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit tossed Slatten's murder conviction and ordered the other defendants to be re-sentenced.[21] A new trial was also recommended for Slatten, on the grounds that it was unjustifiable to try him with his co-defendants, and that he should have been tried separately.[21] In December 2018, Slatten was once again convicted by a jury of murder.[22] On August 14 2019, Slatten was once again sentenced to life in prison.[23]

You along with professional reporters are remiss.

He was probably a interpreter, and Academi is doing mostly gate guarding in AF.
Have not seen any of them or Triple Canopy in Iraq, but I havenít been to all of the bases yet.

Thank you.  I appreciate your credible insight.  If you are correct, then he died a hero.

'Itís not safe at all': Iran harassing families of plane crash victims, sources say
'They know that if these families ... put the blame on the Islamic Republic, the whole of society in Iran would be united against the Islamic Republic'

https://nationalpost.com/news/its-not-safe-at-all-iran-harassing-families-of-plane-crash-victims-sources-say?utm_source=wnd&utm_medium=wnd&utm_campaign=syndicated

Theyíve been told not to talk to the media, keep their mourning as private as possible and even publicly praise the regime that mistakenly shot down their loved onesí airliner.

The families of the Iran plane crash victims ó most of them Canadians or heading to Canada ó are still in the depths of mourning for their relatives.

But that hasnít stopped Tehran from closely monitoring and harassing family living in the country, using release of the victimsí remains as leverage, various sources allege.

U.S. Embassy in Baghdad Hit by katyusha .  This should cost Iran an oil field or two.

I am hoping more along the lines of Sadr gets taken out.  He is the one who is ordering this. Hell he even said it was going to happen.
 I am waiting for strikes on Taji and Al Asad.
He pulled support from the Students that are protesting corruption in the government, because they wouldnít support his million man march.
Basically the students want the Iranian influence out of the Iraqi Goverment and Sadr is supported by Iran. 
Itís a total clusterfuck over here right now.

I can't tell if this happened before or after the embassy was hit by three rockets:

I hope it was after;  I have been itching for a reason to type the words "Mafia Don" for a few days now.

I've been had by one of the goofy conspiracy sites I frequent, dammit.  I am ashamed, always check the date, pate.

Never mind, apogees.

Apparently, two masked dudes on motorcycles whacking gov't types is a thing in Iran.

Also happened a week before the three missiles on the embassy.

So much for my hope of writing the words "Mafia Don," sad trombone.  Stupid conspiracy click-bait sites.

It looks like the Iranian rocket attack wasn't so ineffective as was first reported.

More than 100 US soldiers have been diagnosed with TBI(Traumatic Brain Injuries) as related to the Jan 8/2020 rocket attacks.
It can take prolonged amounts of time before such injuries become apparent.

I am learning more and more weird and stupid shit that happened before, during and after the strikes.
Some of the guards where still in the watch towers when the missiles hit...
Even worse was that KBR didnít tell their folks at all...they where also above ground in regular IDF shelters when it happened and after it they wanted them to go back to work.
Close to 100 of them quit on the spot.

I just read in the local newspaper that the families of each of Canadian killed on that plane will be compensated $150,000.  There were 176 people killed, 55 of them Canadians.

"(55 Canadian citizens, 30 permanent residents and 53 more travelers bound for Canada, including many Iranian students, as well as citizens of Britain, Afghanistan, Sweden and Ukraine)"

Here is Global NEWS' take.  Apparently the $150,000 per family offer has been rejected.
