Uncle Jimbo in the Washington Times

The end of the warrior witch hunt
Blackwater charges dropped but vindication still missing

When he walked into the operations center during the Nisour Square shootings in Baghdad, the first thing a State Department employee heard was a radio call from
the Raven 23 convoy: "Contact, contact, contact! We are taking fire from insurgents and Iraqi police." He wonders why he never hears about that in media reports about the incident.

The paper also chimes in with an editorial of their own on the Blackwater lynching and there is an investigative piece by their excellent reporter Eli Lake coming out soon as well. This was a shameful travesty that made a bad situation worse. The guards acted in good faith and sadly lives were lost. The government acted in bad faith and fortunately no lives were destroyed.
