Iraqi father vows to pursue U.S. lawsuit against Blackwater

Mohammed Kinani, an Iraqi businessman whose 9-year-old son died in the 2007 shootings, said the North Carolina-based security firm has threatened him and offered him $20,000 to stop asking questions about the bloody shooting spree that killed 17 Iraqis in a crowded Baghdad traffic circle. A federal charge threw out criminal charges against the Blackwater guards and another group of survivors has settled. But Kinani says he won't until Blackwater apologizes.
