If, for instance, a company like Blackwater Security Consulting contracted by the government commits a crime not ordered by it. If Blackwater Security Consulting then went bankrupt, and the U.S. lost a war to a country.
Can the U.S. be held financially liable for the crime committed by its military contractor? Can it still be held financially liable even if the country did not go bankrupt? Is there some kind of settlement process during peace treaty negotiations?
