The Story Behind the Blackwater Nisour Square Incident of 2007 Battleline Podcast

    • Government

On September 16, 2007, seventeen Iraqi civilians were killed in an incident involving contractors working for Blackwater. Years later, in 2020, the men involved in Nisour Square were pardoned by President Trump. Eric Parker was with the Tactical Support Team when this took place and gives us the inside story of what really went down. Eric's background includes being a Army special operations veteran with a deployment to Mogadishu, Somalia, contracting with Blackwater in Afghanistan, and then working in Diplomatic Security Service. He is now the President of Red Variable Concepts - http://www.red-variable.com/ and the Founder of Select-International Training Institute http://www.the-select-few.com . As you'll hear in the episode, Eric's businesses are currently hiring guys for private protection if you have the background that they're looking for.
