Two Ex-Blackwater Guards Charged With Murder
The feds have charged two former Blackwater guards with second degree murder and attempted murder in the Eastern District of Virginia.
They are Justin Cannon, 27, and Chris Drotleff, 29. Both are in custody. The charges arise from a shooting in Kabul in which two Afghans were killed.
Both men have said in recent interviews with The Associated Press that they were justified in opening fire on a car that caused an accident in front of their vehicle, then turned and sped toward them after they got out to help.
