Mothers: No Justice for Our Sons Slaughtered in Iraq


"The families haven't had their day in court just because Blackwater has more money than they do," Miles said. "We will take it all the way up to the Supreme Court if need be, to make sure that families have access to justice, not based on how much money they have."

Fighting back tears as she recalled what the last few moments of life would have been like for her son Scott, Katy Helvenston-Wettengel said the case now has nothing to do with money, but about getting justice for her son.

"There's nothing worse for a mother, knowing the way they died and it didn't have to be," she said. "I feel very betrayed. I thought that our country was one to be proud of, that there was justice and accountability. And to find out that's not the case, is just very overwhelming."
