The News and Observer of Raleigh reports Sunday that a private security company violated its own written standards in March by sending four contractors on an undermanned mission in Fallujah, Iraq. The contract workers for Blackwater Security Consulting of Moyock were ambushed, mutilated, burned and dragged through the streets. The four men drove into an ambush along a main road in Fallujah without the full six-man team specified in Blackwater's contract to protect a company feeding U.S. troops. A former employee says the company fought with a subcontractor to get armored vehicles, but still sent the four on the mission without them.
