How did the Blackwater shootings happen?

It was September 16, 2007. A Blackwater personal security detail was clearing the way for a convoy of State Department diplomats. The shootings supposedly started after the driver of a car kept driving toward the convoy ignoring orders to stop. When the shooting was over, 14 Iraqis were dead and 18 were wounded. A trial is underway in Washington for Blackwater security guards involved in the shooting.

Alexis was a former Navy reservist, a Defense Department contractor, a convert to Buddhism and a student of aeronautics.
