#2 Can't imagine they didn't have security of some kind. Blackwater could be replaced by Aegis or Global or (fill in the blank), with literally the same personnel as previously employed by Blackwater - but most of you know all that.

Wonder if this was just "luck" or a targeted hit - sounds like by far the most senior US casualty in Iraq to date.

Sad and infuriating. I'll stop now before I say more.

#4 Verlaine, I heard a report on NPR the other day that the security employees are mostly unchanged from the Blackwater days. Only the name signing the paycheck has changed.
