PRESS RELEASE FROM BLACKWATER SECURITY CONSULTING
We grieve today for the loss of our colleagues and we pray for their families. The names of the victims will not be released out of respect for their families. The graphic images of the unprovoked attack and subsequent heinous mistreatment of our friends exhibits the extraordinary conditions under which we voluntarily work to bring freedom and democracy to the Iraqi people. Coalition forces and civilian contractors and administrators work side by side every day with the Iraqi people to provide essential goods and services like food, water, electricity and vital security to the Iraqi citizens and coalition members. Our tasks are dangerous and while we feel sadness for our fallen colleagues, we also feel pride and satisfaction that we are making a difference for the people of Iraq.--Blackwater Security Consulting is a strategic division of Blackwater USA.
