You don't say

According to Iraqi government spokesman, Ali al-Dabbagh, the US government, in coordination with the Iraqi government*, has extended Blackwater International's contract. Mr. al-Daggagh goes on to say that the rules of engagement have been changed on the "use of force in a way not offending Iraqi citizens". Mr. al-Daggagh did not indicated if being killed without provocation is offensive to the Iraqi people.

*I interpret this to mean that the US said "we did this" and the Iraqi government said "righty-ho".
