Richard Miniter: CIA Shut Down In Iraq
Richard Miniter: CIA Shut Down In Iraq Thursday, September 20, 2007
PajamasMedia’s Washington editor Richard Miniter has a good read out early this morning and it goes in part like this...
At least eight Iraqis are reported dead after the Sunday shoot out and some press reports refer to the local casualties as “civilians.”
“Initial press accounts were inaccurate,” said Blackwater USA spokeswoman Anne Tyrell. “The ‘civilians’ reportedly fired upon by Blackwater professionals were in fact armed enemies and Blackwater personnel returned defensive fire. Blackwater regrets any loss of life but this convoy was violently attacked by armed insurgents, not civilians, and our people did their job to defend human life.”“
Blackwater professionals heroically defended American lives in a war zone on Sunday and Blackwater will cooperate with any inquiry into this matter.”
It’s well known in Iraq that dead insurgents become “civilians” as soon as their comrades carry away their AK-47s and spare magazines. Captured al Qaeda manuals detail how militants should use deaths as a propaganda tool.
