Blackwater Gassed US Troops

Employees of Blackwater used CS gas to clear traffic on a crowded Baghdad street in May of 2005. At least 10 US soldiers and an unknown number of Iraqis were affected by the use of the gas, which is prohibited except in extreme circumstances.
"This was decidedly uncool and very, very dangerous," Capt. Kincy Clark of the Army, the senior officer at the scene, wrote later that day, Risen said. "It's not a good thing to cause soldiers who are standing guard against car bombs, snipers and suicide bombers to cover their faces, choke, cough and otherwise degrade our awareness."
