The lawsuit "is governed by the law of Afghanistan," Blackwater subsidiary Presidential Airways argued in a Florida federal court. "Afghan law is largely religion-based and evidences a strong concern for ensuring moral responsibility, and deterring violations of obligations within its borders."
If the judge agrees, it would essentially end the lawsuit over a botched flight supporting the U.S. military because Shari'a law does not hold a company responsible for the actions of employees performed within the course of their work. Shari'a law also calls for the execution of gays, among other decidedly non-Western norms.
