Report says that FBI finds 14 of the 17 Blackwater shootings were unjustified

WASHINGTON (AP) - A spokeswoman for Blackwater Worldwide says the North Carolina-based company supports "stringent accountability" for any wrongdoing. That comment comes after The New York Times citing unidentified sources in reporting that federal investigators found that the shooting deaths of at least 14 Iraqi civilians by its guards violated rules of deadly force. The newspaper reports for Wednesday's editions that the killings of at least 14 of the 17 Iraqi civilians shot by Blackwater personnel guarding a U.S. Embassy convoy were found to have been unjustified and violated standards in place governing the use of deadly force.
