Blackwater's Version of Iraq Attack Disputed
James Glanz, New York Times Baghdad bureau chief, has been reporting on the September incident involving a convoy of Blackwater USA personnel who are accused of the unprovoked shooting of Iraqi civilians.
The Times spoke with a dozen witnesses and with Iraqi investigators, who dispute the version of events given by Blackwater.
The Times also reports that there was a second incident the same day, possibly involving the same Blackwater convoy, in which more Iraqis were shot.
Glanz talks with Robert Siegel.
